Tennessee River TN 58 Bridge
Posted December 4, 2008, by Bob Davis (bobdaviscfi [at] earthlink [dot] net)

Went Monday to photograph this bridge. I remembered the steel through truss from decades ago. Alas, no longer here. It's been replaced by one of those concrete spans a la interstate type for these lengths. Sorry, but any photos of this bridge will be historic.
