Damaged Bridge

Has anyone traveled I40 East from Asheville to Greensboro and ran over a bridge that had a bulge causing a ramp effect. I ran over it on Friday of this past week. It scared me caused my truck to jump rear wheels off ground. I just knew I broke something. I was able to pull off road about 10 miles down road to check on everything. Nothing noted to the naked eye as of yet. Then when I got home I noticed the 5th wheel moved some. I'm trying to locate that bridge if anyone has traveled it. It was also in the fast lane I40 East.

Just a guess here. But I'll throw in my .02 worth.

I quit racing ATVs this year. But last year, we had several races in the Hickory and Morganton area. Never drove past exit 105 in Morganton. But on the way home, the bridge over the river just east of exit 138 was quite a hit. But we never hit one so hard that we had problems.

Can't say I've been over that but sounds scary. I do stay out of the left lane most of the time though.
