CSX Savannah River Bridge at Augusta

(May 2005 photo by Frankie Grove. Some rights reserved.)

Similar in design to the Norfolk Southern bridge in downtown Augusta, this bridge at Sandbar Ferry combines a bascule lift span with several through-truss and plate-girder deck spans. Constructed in 1929-32 for the Charleston & Western Carolina Railway, it lies 195.4 miles from the mouth of the river and four miles downstream from downtown Augusta. It continues in use by C&WC successor CSX.
