There’s Something Incredibly Unique About This One Swinging Bridge In Mississippi
The Byram Swinging Bridge connects Hinds and Rankin Counties. The bridge was built as a collaboration between merchants in Byram and Rankin. Folks in Byram purchased the swinging bridge kit, and Rankin County sawmills provided the lumber.
The Byram Bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It’s also registered as a Mississippi landmark and was also designated as a civil engineering landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Not only is it an icon in the area, it’s also been recently renovated. Since the renovation, something remarkable is happening on this bridge.
