The Dolly Parton Bridge

There is a bridge on I-65 just outside of Mobile that is known to the locals as the "Dolly Parton Bridge." It's a pretty big bridge that spans the Mobile-Tensaw River, which is actually more of a marshland than a river. Here is a photo of the Dolly Parton Bridge.

Can you guess how it got its name? Maybe you need a closer look. If Dolly is a DD, that bridge is definitely a DDD. Does that size even exist?

I got a pretty good view of the bridge from my cage. I wasn't all that impressed though.

Although this bridge has a completely different name (The General W.K. Wilson Jr. Bridge), while we were in Mobile, Ian heard a newscast about the "Dolly Parton Bridge" being backed up due to an accident. We got a good laugh out of that. I wonder how many people in the area know the real name of the bridge. I think they should just change the name and call it done.

    I would think General W.K. Wilson Jr. would be greatly disappointed!

    Dude, you should TOTALLY edit the wikipedia article to reflect the bridges local name.

    Wow, we need to visit more of the South. People here in MN are way too prim and proper to nickname a bridge after some lady's boobs! Pawsome.

    We don't have any bridges around here named after boobs either.

    FYI - The Wiki already has a note on the bridge's page about it's "local" name. LOL!

    I love that name! Amazing. Has that bridge had a lot of "work" done?

    Also, I knew a girl with size K boobs once. They were RIDICULOUS.

    My mom said she grew up in Mobile and never knew the bridge's real name (or wondered if it had one) until now! She says that's "too funny!" Whatever... why must you ride in the jail, Norman??? Mom has a special seat for me when we take the road trips.
