About Me 

Website: http://www.texas-travelers.com/

I am mainly a hobbyist photographer and very interested in traveling to as much of the state of Texas as is humanly possible and photograph as much of the history and wildlife as I can stand.

I tend to travel the highways and roads most do not, just looking.

I'll contribute whatever I run across that will help this site obtain more of the historic bridges and tunnels we have in the great state of Texas (And anywhere else we decide the road takes us).

Possibly located at or near 32.506744, -98.350019 will explore in 2 weeks. There is a shadow that resembles a suspension bridge below a steel frame crossing east to west at this location. HAER Photos also call out east to west alignment.

Just to answer the how many spans question .... In May of 2012 one span could easily cross the river. I'm sure that's the way it is most of the time. I'm also sure there are times when the river is much, much wider.
