This bridge is an unusual example of two things. One, the bridge utilizes both concrete and steel stringer spans extensively (usually, bridges are one or the other, or if they do use both, the second type is not used nearly as much as the first). Secondly, the bridge is an unusual example of a haunched steel stringer. Most of the time, haunched beams are found on deck plate girder bridges, which makes this bridge an exception. Finally, although not so much with this bridge, many of the Tennessee and Cumberland River bridges are significant simply for their surrounding locations and/or their overall lengths.
