Since I recently did a keychain for Memphis,
I thought this beautiful bridge deserved a keychain also.
The Hernando de Soto Bridge is a
through arch bridge carrying
Interstate 40 across the
Mississippi River between
West Memphis, Arkansas, and
Tennessee. Memphians also call the bridge the "New Bridge", as it is newer than the
Memphis & Arkansas Bridge (carrying
Interstate 55) downstream, and the "M Bridge", due to its distinctive shape. It is of similar construction to the
Sherman Minton Bridge between
Louisville, Kentucky, and
New Albany, Indiana.
The bridge is named for 16th century Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto who explored this stretch of the Mississippi River, and died south of Memphis. (random facts via wikipedia)
