Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of the only bridge from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Tuckaseigee River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

Notes
  • A 4/4/2002 article in The Sylva Herald And Ruralite ("Repairing Last Swinging Bridge") notes this bridge was completed 1964, but Patrick S. O'Donnell sent me a photo of a 1906 Roanoke Bridge Co. builder's plate attached to one of the towers.
