The Captain William J. Hudson ?Steamboat Bill? Memorial Bridges are two bridges in Decatur, Alabama. They cross the Tennessee River and spans one of the widest points along the said body of water.

The Captain William J. Hudson ?Steamboat Bill? Memorial Bridges was built in 1963 and 1999 as a replacement to the historic William Keller Bridge. The Keller Bridge was a drawbridge completed in 1928. It served as the primary way to cross the river from its completion and until it was relieved by some of the traffic in the 60s. Soon enough, however, it proved to be more of a danger and hassle than help, so in 1999, a new concrete bridge was built. In the process, the Steamboat Bill also helped people cross the river in some ways.
