Looking at the spacing, I am guessing that the three concrete pillars replaced one steel support. I suspect that the original steel support would have spanned what is now the median of the interstate.
Did this bridge always have those three concrete piers; or were they added when the interstate was built to replace the steel ones?
Have always wondered about this trestle, as for two decades it's never ceased to surprise me as we round the bend passing through the area (a fairly frequent travel) and suddenly this massive hulk of metal appears, towering over the road. Awesome structure.
Oh my heavens!!!!!! I finally found other pictures of this trestle. Does anyone have a photo of the tracks as you are looking across the bridge, like a view from the deck. I saw this trestle when my mom and I were taking one of our vacations coming up from Florida ( came through Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky ) to Missouri. The first time I saw this bridge, I nearly had a heart attack. Man, it is AWESOME!!!!! I plan on building one like it for a model railroad.
