Cummings Highway Underpass
Posted September 4, 2010, by Kevin Paulk (editor [at] charter [dot] net)

Many a modern 18-wheeler has become stuck under this bridge, as I recall from my adolescent and early-adult years living in Chattanooga. When that happens, they flatten the tires to lower the trailer enough to dislodge it.
