CR 29 Cahaba River Bridge
Posted October 17, 2015, by Robert (robertday645 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Crossed this bridge many times going to my favorite fishing spot, don't see why they closed it. Never had any problems crossing,the added time and distance to go around must not have been a factor to people.
