Frisco Highline Trail - Sac River Bridge
Posted March 31, 2015, by Dale Rush (rush [at] ecarthage [dot] com)

This was noted in Frisco's Bridge Records as bridge no. 165.8 with five deck plate girder spans at 54'0" in length and a maximum height of 37'. Ties were 8" x 12" x 12' and the deck was rebuilt in 1938 and 1940.

Also considered part of the bridge is a rock tee wall that extends 25' in length.
