Before Old Highway 80 was built to veer north at a larger bridge over the Sweetwater River, this was the original path that probably included the Bankhead Highway. The current asphalt veers to the right to meet Wildwood Glen Lane, the long-time route of US Highway 80. You can still seen the concrete seams over the original road. It’s now a driveway through private property, although as you can see, the telephone lines still continue in the original path.
