CSX Tellico Lake Railroad Bridge
Posted October 19, 2011, by Thad Osborne (tgo1330 [at] comcast [dot] net)

This ios an entirely new bridge built for the impoundment of Tellico Lake in the 1970s. It was built by the W.L. Hailey Company of Nashville, Tennessee. The original bridge was slightly upstream and the south abutment is still visible.
