I-20 Bridge over Mississippi River at Vicksburg, MS

(Bridge Hunter; Historic BridgesJohn A. Weeks III, the eastern two piers have moved 4" laterally; Satellite)

The main span is 870' long. John Weeks calls it a continuous truss, but Bridge Hunter calls it a cantilevered truss. It is too young for Historic Bridges to cover. Since the National Bridge Inventory calls it continuous, I'm going to agree with John in terms of labelling this post "bridgeContinuous."
