Ghost Bridge Is Falling Down,……..


After a valiant effort started by Evan Tidwell, the Jackson Ford Bridge, aka Ghost Bridge will come down. The Lauderdale County Commission voted this morning to accept a bid for demolition. The bridge has been sitting there for 16 years, unusable and just recently the county deemed it a liability. Given more time, the Ghost Bridge facebook page could have succeeded in their efforts. Of this I have no doubt. Mr. Tidwell spent countless hours in leading this group in a very professional way in the efforts to try and save the bridge. Thank you Evan for those efforts and thank you to all of those that helped in the effort. It is sad that another piece of local history is about to be removed.
