Building Bridges from our Past to our Future

Calvin Sneed’s first book, with some of the 11,800+ bridge pictures he’s posted to bridgehunter.com, is now available (College Press ISBN: 978-1-5323-4369-8).

Tim Cable and I interviewed Calvin on Thinking Out Loud morning show on AM910 WJCW radio this morning.  Truss bridges, mostly, are a passion for Calvin.  And he knows his stuff.

The book isn’t on amazon.com yet; however, Calvin’s having a book signing at the I Love Books bookstore in the Ft. Henry Mall in Kingsport this Sunday, December 10, from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.

    There’s a gorgeous tunnel in Rosspoint, Kentucky, if you’ve not covered it already. It’s on Highway 522. The new county high school is on the eastern side. You have to go down Tunnel Hill Road on the western side to get pictures. You’d have to go up a long private driveway off of Highway 119 from the football field parking lot in order to get pictures of the eastern side.

      I just looked it up on Google Earth. Looks interesting! Thank you for the tip!

        Quite welcome. Could you please let me know if you photograph it?

        There’s also a tunnel out on 987 — but it’s an overpass type thing. The road goes under the railroad. The road makes a 90 degree turn on the far side, and it’s straight downhill on the other. Fun drive!

        With a little luck, my buddy and I will be in the Cumberland area this weekend, but we need to head north to take in that tunnel. I’ve also got to figure out who owns those tracks and what the name associated with the tunnel. Research!

        You’ve probably had a successful hunt by now, but those are CSX tracks – L&N from way back. Everything in Harlan County is underwater now, seems like. Too much rain – and more coming.
