The Bill Emerson Memorial BridgeAfter 15 years of planning and 7 years of construction, the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge opened to traffic on December 13, 2003. The bridge was named for Bill Emerson, and eight-term Congressman who had championed the legislation that brought about the construction of this modern cable-stayed structure, replacing the first bridge which served the community from 1928 to 2003.
