Confirmed victory

The Jackson Ford Bridge is one of the oldest standing bridges in the area, and is a place that holds special memories for many area residents. The site would make a wonderful park with canoe access to Cypress Creek and the bridge reopened to foot traffic and fishing.

Letter to
Lauderdale County Commission
We the undersigned respectfully request that the Lauderdale County Commission would not make a final decision to demolish the Jackson Ford Bridge (also known as the “Ghost Bridge”) at this time. We request adequate time to explore the possibility of preserving the bridge and removing the county’s liability. We wish to open a discussion with the Commission on this matter, and ask that no final decision be made with undue haste.
