Posted July 28, 2021, by Michael G Smith (mgsrecruiting [at] gmail [dot] com)

According to "Engineering Record" January 7, 1911, page 12, "The French Broad River Bridge, Southern Railway":

"Work was commenced on the bridge in October, 1906, and was prosecuted until November 1907, when operations were discontinued until April 1909. The work was carried on continuously from that date until completion in May 1910."
