After doing further detective work, I believe the bridge in the thicket is one like this.

I love how this bridge sits alone in a cornfield.Very cool.

I spoke with a Waco official back when the bridge was still under the tent about what color they were going to paint it. It had always been silver as far back as I could remember. He said it would be painted black as that was the original color when it was built. It has a dramatic look to it since everything around it is green, blue, white etc.

Waco did a great job of rehabilitating this bridge in 2010. The entire bridge was covered in a giant tent while the paint work was taking place. I just noticed yesterday that they also replaced the road deck with new concrete.

Great info Anthony. Thanks!

Green Bridge Paint
Posted February 9, 2011

Anyone out there that can give a brief history on why so many bridges are a unique color green? I imagine its done to blend in with the surroundings but its color is like no other green I've ever seen. I've read several articles on the Tacoma Narrows "Galloping Gertie" bridge and noticed its color was called Narrows Green and that the paint used in 1940 was (is) highly toxic. Is this the same shade green used by the others? Any info is appreciated.

If you go to street view, and pan left of the bridge you can see the walk bridge that has similar styling. I will get further pics hopefully by the weekend.

Posted January 31, 2011

Yes, it has a walkway. Will get more pics.

It was a 1 1/2 lane slab with a mowed shoulder, when two vehicles met, one was supposed to yield. lol. The state came in and built a FM road over the slab roadbed, moved the road a little to go around the old bridge. I've lived in Navarro Co all my life and remember many serious accidents that occurred on this bridge. Everything from head-on collisions to drunks hitting the sides and being flipped over in the creek. I'm glad they finally gave the poor bridge some rest. You are right, it is very narrow.
