The Talmadge Memorial Bridge is a bridge spanning the Savannah River between downtown Savannah, Georgia and Hutchinson Island. The original bridge was built in 1953. A replacement bridge was completed in 1991, also referred to as the Talmadge Memorial Bridge. The original Talmadge Bridge was a cantilever truss bridge built in 1953. It eventually became a danger for large ships entering the Port of Savannah, home to the largest single ocean container terminal on the U.S. eastern seaboard, and the nation's fourth-busiest seaport. A replacement bridge able to not impede maritime traffic was completed in March 1991. The new Talmadge Memorial Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge.
