KYLE - County 14 Bridge

Like many of the roads in Republic County, this one was a mud road and in horrible condition after the area got over an inch of rain prior to my visit. We got our rental car stuck 100' north of the US-36 intersection. As the tow truck operator said, they've pulled 40+ cars off this road in the last year, due to the mud.
