I grew up in Dale County, about 14 miles east of the bridge. Back in the late 60's when I was in High School, we'd sometimes forget to go to school and several of us would load up in my old 63 Chevy II and wind up here. This was way back on a dirt road and there were no people for miles around. There used to be a big sand bar just north of the bridge, where we'd swim/picnic, but the river has changed some and the bend where it was, has been straightened out, although you can still see a slight bend in the river. I sure wish I had pictures of all us kids, about 4 guys and 2 girls, fine memories right there.
I have some pictures of the old mill that was there originally Popes Mill later Snellgroves
yep...i grew up in alabama (slocomb), so i know that there are a lot of bridges that have not been included on here that need to be. I am in the process of adding them, however.
Good find! Keep an eye out for more abandoned bridges in Alabama and Georgia. I am told by an engineer who lives down there that there are quite a few abandoned bridges around, and I suspect we don't have them all listed here.
