May 2010 flood damage: Centerville Bridge

May 2010 flood damage: Centerville Bridge

This Bridge was built in 1913 to carry traffic over the Duck River on the west side of Centerville. I think I heard that Minnie Pearl would talk about walking across this bridge as a child.

In 1970, a new bridge was built and Tennessee highway 50 was rerouted across the river causing this one to be closed.

When the huge storms brought over a foot of rainfall in the first weekend of May 2010, floods destroyed this and to my knowledge two other bridges in Middle Tennessee. (the other two are the old bridge at Hurricane Mills and an old Harpeth River bridge on Old Harding Rd in SW Davidson Co.
