Long Description:
Named in honor of Cordell Hull, the 47th U.S. Secretary of State and Nobel laureate, the Cordell Hull Bridge, a continuous three-span Parker truss, spans the Cumberland River. Hull's influence diverted New Deal funds toward the $199,083 cost of construction that began in December 1934. The bridge opened to traffic on May 14, 1936. After closure in 2007 for a 19.5 million dollar renovation, the bridge reopened on July 2, 2014.
