P.R. Oligiati Bridge
Posted June 12, 2013, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

The 1964 postcard of this bridge shows two curved t-beams. I found that these still are standing today. I am guessing there are not many of these remaining in Tennessee, so I added them:

Martha, do you have any photos of these bridges?
