Long Description:
Ardmore is an interesting city because it is located in 2 counties and 2 states, which complicates governance exponentially.

This steel stringer railroad overpass carries the CSX railroad's main line over Main Street (AL SH 53/TN SH 7/Old US 31) in downtown Ardmore, on the TN side of the TN-AL state line.
