Haunted Bridge

You are here Home  > Bridges >  Haunted Bridge

Alabama has a lot of haunted bridges. A LOT. And when you are a state who apparently decides a bridge needs to be replaced with a new one, and then moves the old one to a brand new location you can kind of understand how lots of bridge wrecks and ghosts can occur. Actually, the old bridge won’t be open to car traffic at its new location but the moving of the haunted bridge does give rise to some interesting questions. For instance, will the ghostly happenings occur at the new location? Or will they specters remain and haunt the new bridge in the old location? Practically metaphysical amounts of pondering this situation engenders.

    1. I’m not sure where you got this lead for a story, but there are a couple of things I’d like to mention for the sake of accuracy. …One… the video you have is not the haunted bridge and as a lifelong resident of the haunted bridge area I can’t say I have ever seen this particular bridge. …Two… The Google map picture is the right place, but it shows the new bridge which replaced the “haunted bridge”. To my knowledge the new bridge does not appear to be haunted. I cross it several times a day as I live near by. The original haunted bridge was a high-railed, one-lane, iron bridge with a loose plank floor that sounded like a train wreck when anyone crossed it. It now resides in Attalla, Al in a park located on US 431. I am not sure if the ghost was also relocated.
