Description 

Located near the site of Trap Crossing, an old and much-traveled crossing of the Colorado River on the road from Coleman City to Fort Concho to the south, this bridge was the last of a long series of crossings at this general location. It was constructed during the Depression as a Civilian Conservation Corps project in response to the consolidation of area ranch schools and a resulting Works Progress Administration-sponsored road and bridge project constructed across the adjoining Day-Padgitt and Day-Miller ranches.
