Coleman Road Bridge
Posted April 30, 2022, by Brian R. Warren (sanitarian1281[at]yahoo[dot]com)

I visited this site on April 28. The bridge is visible from the western end of Coleman Road. The last mile of the road has some large ruts and may not be passable during periods of heavy rainfall (I traversed the last half-mile on foot), but it's been relatively dry in Mississippi over the last few weeks. What's left of the bridge is leaning on its side and I wasn't able to discern whether any of the deck remains because it's completely submerged. I did shoot a few stills and a couple of videos. I did not attempt to locate the bridge from the eastern side, but the map suggests that it's much harder to see from that side.
