Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

Some states like Pennsylvania have 1930s and even early 1940s metal truss bridges, that they do not even consider historic. The state of Tennessee, among states touching the Appalachian Mountain ranges, has one of the smallest quantities of remaining metal truss bridges. They are a good example of why states like Pennsylvania should consider recognizing and preserving more of their 1930s truss bridges. This 1914 structure, located in Pall Mall has at least been given some attention, as it has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and is thus officially considered historic. This bridge is in fact the only remaining truss bridge in the county on public roads, making its preservation essential to retaining an important era in bridge history within the county. A small, but attractive through truss structure, the bridge is located near the historic home of Sgt. Alvin C. York, considered a World War I hero. As a result, this bridge is a good candidate for preservation since it is in a historic setting that likely sees some tourism activity as well.
