Inscription.  (obverse)
The Campbell's Levee Bridge, built by the Vincennes Bridge Company of Vincennes, Indiana, in 1920-21 for the Tennessee Department of Highways and Public Works, once spanned this stream. This bridge was located on the important Memphis-to-Bristol Highway / S.R. 1 (designated US 70 in 1925) and was Tennessee's first federal-aid bridge project.

Before its demolition in 1993, this bridge contained one truss span which was composed of steel members in triangular patterns which distributed weight allowing the bridge to carry heavy loads.
