Thanks for adding these links Eddie! Was good to see the old bridge being enjoyed one last time. Almost as if they were unknowingly having a farewell party for it.
The music group Fast Ryde filmed a video on this bridge about a month before it was destroyed. Here is a link to the original video and one of them revisiting it after the flood.

James, I'm thankful that you visited and documented this unique span before it was lost......otherwise myself and many others would have missed out.
That's what this site is all about!
so did i, my friend.........so did I
well at least its counterpart (collins river bridge) is still there.
it was a beautiful bridge
A tragic loss......I had hoped this bridge might someday be reused.
i hope the collins river bridge survived. went with james to see it earlier this year. This was a amazing bridge, by what i seen of its twin on the collins river.
It is a shame that this bridge was destroyed by flooding. I wonder if any of it might be salvageable. Hopefully the very similar Collins River Bridge in Warren County, TN remains.
This is a real beauty! Very ornate portals, and the unusual slope of the endposts give this bridge an almost "bowstring" appearance. The city of Nashville would be smart to restore this span for trail or recreational use.
