I was at an event just south of Munfordville back in 2006 and crossed this bridge many times. I wish I'd taken some pictures.

I stopped in Munfordville for lunch, and it was a beautiful day, so I got it takeout and drove down to the park to the picnic area. I had the Canon and lens bag in the trunk, so I decided to get some "underneaths" of the 31W bridge while I was there.

The "through and through" shot really doesn't serve much purpose, I was just proud that my old self could climb high enough to take it. BTW, that inspection catwalk looks like it would be lots of fun.
