Cordell Hull Bridge - Carthage, TN

Cordell Hull Bridge - Carthage, TN

It is the old bridge connecting Carthage to South Carthage over the Cumberland River. On the south side of the river, is just a bluff and an area wide enough for U.S. 70S to pass through. It was built in 1936 and was the second bridge to span the river at this spot. Cordell Hull was Secretary of State for FDR for 11 years. I would have driven over the bridge, like I did last in September 2007 but the bridge was closed in 2008. Hopefully, it's just for repairs and is not permanent.
