Additional Details:
Erected at a cost of approximately $1,000,000. Concrete save for the middle span, which is a bascule lift. The Tennessee River from this point to Hale's Bar, 33 miles distant, is practically an inland lake. It is situated between two mountain ranges and is called by many the ""Americal Rhine."" This bridge occupies the site of the Military Bridge constructed by the Federals during the Civil War. The Military Bridge was washed away by high water a few years later
