In 2017 You still come off the bridge eastbound and have to make a curve that is generously allotted 35 MPH back into the old road. The straight direction would go to a Greenville freeway bypass that has some dirt work done and little more.

Does anyone know how tall the columns are that hold the cables in place. i.e. distance from the roadbed to the flashing light on top?

I don't know if I have done it right, but I tried to enclose a great picture of the new Greenvillle,MS bridge that crosses the Mississippi river into Arkansas. I hope it downloads for you and that you can use it.

Great work on this site. I noticed that the contractors who built the new Greenville Bridge were listed as Traylor Brothers alone. It actually was:

1) Massman/Traylor a Joint Venture built the three span cable stayed portion.

2) Hill Brothers and Jensen Construction built the Mississippi Approach.

3) Austin Bridge & Road built the Arkansas Approach

The main span of this bridge was built by "Massman-Traylor, a joint venture", the Arkansas approach built by "Austin Bridge Co.", and the Mississippi approach was built by "Hill Brothers (dirt work)" and "Jansen Construction (bridge work)". I was an engineer on the main span.
