Caruthersville BridgeEdit profile
The Caruthersville Bridge is a cantilever bridge carrying Interstate 155 and U.S. Route 412 across the Mississippi River between Caruthersville, Missouri and Dyersburg, Tennessee.
Construction of the bridge began in February 1969 and the bridge was completed in 1976. It is the only bridge to cross the Mississippi River between Cairo, Illinois and Memphis, Tennessee. Interstate 155 connects Dyersburg, Tennessee (and the proposed Interstate 69) with Interstate 55 near Caruthersville, Missouri and Hayti, Missouri. U.S. Route 412, when created in 1982, was routed across the bridge.
