These land piers supported three Howe through truss spans, with two river piers in the middle
The steel through truss spans were dismantled and removed when the new deck girder and pony truss spans were built at the time Douglass Lake was impounded by TVA.. New, higher bridge was built 500 feet downstream to the right. All views are to the south from the north shore, river runs from left to right.
