Subject: Bell County Sunshine Road correction
Dear TE: I was reading the "Bell County Sunshine Road " entry on your website and need to point out a mistake.

The steel truss bridge shown is over the Little River, not "George Branch." The bridge was open until a flood washed out the approaches in 1992, and it remained closed until a new bridge was built a couple of years ago. This bridge is severed from both banks, so there is no way to access it. I thought I would bring this to your attention. - Sincerely, Austin Hellwig, October 22, 2006
