I kept zooming out on the satellite image to get the end of the truck line at the grain elevator. Note that the elevator is inside the levee. I would have thought that they would have built the elevator on the other side of the levee and used a longer conveyor belt to the barge loading facility. Note there is no rail service. They must raise quite a few soybeans in Tennessee to supply this elevator locally.
Taking a closer look at a satellite image, it is obvious that they built a hill to the top of the levee on which to build the elevator.
Some of the photos uploaded for Bunge include the bridge in the background.

The water does sometimes make it all the way across land to the levee and the elevator's hill.

I didn't notice how asymmetrical the bridge was until I saw this photo.
