Notes
Survey number HAER MS-14-C
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N483).
Building/structure dates: 1936 initial construction
Significance: Constructed over five months in 1936-1937, the Confederate Avenue bridge spanning Halls Ferry Road is the only extant bridge of its type in the state of Mississippi. The bridge was included in the portion of land transferred to the city of Vicksburg in 1963. Now lying outside the park boundary and outside of park jurisdiction, the bridge is in a precarious situation, facing possible alteration or replacement.
