Etowah River Bridge, Rome
The Central of Georgia Railway crossed the Etowah River on this through-truss steel bridge. It is now known as the Bob Moore Bridge, dedicated to the memory of Rome native and bicycle shop owner Robert L. (Bob) Moore, Sr.
|The bridge is part of the city's Silver Creek Trail which begins at the end of East 4th Street.|
|A few yards upstream are the piers from the Southern Railway bridge that once stood here (above).|
|This 1915 Sanborn map shows both bridges.|
