Bridge Documentation

Tennessee is noted for its use of a state-design truss that is a variety of K-Parker truss, where only the center panels use the K-truss design, with outer panels having a Pratt or Parker truss configuration. Tennessee is the only state that used this design. This good example of this unusual design was bypassed and preserved in place for pedestrian use, a fortunate outcome since many of the surviving examples have been demolished over the years leaving few surviving examples. The portal bracing was altered during its vehicular service to increase vertical clearance.
