Bayou Lacombe US 190 Bridge
Construction began after the contract for the bridge and approaches was awarded in December 1936 to T. L. James & Company of Ruston, LA for $128,788. The bridge replaced an earlier steel swing bridge dating from 1916 that existed about 500 feet upstream and required a 0.7-mile realignment of US 190 on either side of Bayou Lacombe.
The bridge was completed and accepted by the state highway department in November 1938.
