US 80 Chunky River Bridge

Map 

Description 

Truss was removed in 1992 and replaced with concrete section of the same narrow width, as the original concrete approaches were left in place and are still used as part of the current bridge. There was another bridge exactly like this one just down the road in Lauderdale County, and it received the same treatment.
