Big Sandy River Bridge - near Bruceton, TN

Big Sandy River Bridge - near Bruceton, TN

This is a Pratt pony truss bridge over Big Sandy River on Old Bruceton Road. In the area, Old Bruceton Road was originally part of the Memphis-to-Bristol Highway which became TN1 and then US70. The old road parallels US70 in the area, and with the closing of the bridge, the old road is diverted to the new highway. I'm not sure what the purpose of the vertical beam and what's left of the horizontal beam across the front.
