Cumberland River Bridge (Louisville & Nashville Railroad)

The Louisville & Nashville Railroad (L&N) Bypass Bridge crosses the Cumberland River in Nashville, Tennessee and was built so that the L&N could bypass downtown and Union Station.

The substructure and steel erection was handled by the Foster-Creighton-Gould Company of Nashville and the steel superstructure was constructed by the American Bridge Company of New York. The approximate 3,000-foot crossing, including the 300-foot main Camelback through truss span, three 200-foot Warren through truss spans, and three 135-foot deck truss spans, was completed in the fall of 1913.

  • Total Length: 3,000 feet
