Grand Ecore Bridge
Posted February 21, 2018, by richard stout (ripperstout [at] yahoo [dot] com)

My father, Frank Stout, was the Superintendent to build this Red River Bridge in 1959. During the construction of the new bridge, one span of the old bridge washed away and was temporarily fixed until the new bridge was completed.
