I found 5 or 6 such bridges like this one on the old alignment of US 64, two which are visible from I-24 (at Milepost 140 and 148). Again, had to drive through here so no pictures were taken. Most of them have guardrails installed, but there is one that does not. Street view does not do much in the way of justice, however.

saw one of these such bridges in Marion County, TN still with the 1920 era concrete railings in this area near I-24 and there is another one within view of I-24. Sorry, no photos this time around, I was driving and it was raining.
