Yes the bridge was left behind. It was not torn down. I remember before the lake was backed up going across the bridge into South Carolina to get fireworks. I also remember going across the new bridge looking down at the old bridge. If you were a diver you could dive it.
old road on Georgia side is now access road to boat ramp! I would also like to know if the old bridge was still there
I was poking around on Google Maps and found where the old road that lead to this bridge enters the water - it wouldn't surprise me if this bridge was inundated instead of torn down in 1983 when the lake was filled.
Any Georgia Bridgehunters with a boat and sidescan sonar? Inundated bridges fascinate me. Is there a category for that?
