Bridge Tragedy Memorial

On May 26, 2002, a barge struck the I-40 bridge at Webbers Falls, and a 600-foot span fell into the river. Fourteen people lost their lives and are memorialized with a monument that sits in the shadow of the repaired bridge. You are able to drive up and park next to the monument.
