Huntington Bridge

Judging by the piers and abutments, it's likely that this bridge's superstructure is not the original one here. It looks like there may have been a large truss bridge here and was replaced by this one.

Great pictures. The flat ground under the bridge was the Frisco's Mansfield branch, abandoned during or just after WWII. In the early 90's you could still drive the roadbed about a mile south from here, but it was totally washed out to the north.
