Texas Electric - Spring Creek Bridge
Posted November 24, 2018, by Adam Watkins (adam12watkins [at] gmail [dot] com)

The abutments on each side of the creek are still standing (3 total). The tour guide at the Interurban Railway Museum in Downton Plano told us about this bridge. You can see the abutments from Spring Creek Trail near 911 location sign SC 113. Park in the parking lot at 101 W Renner Rd (see Google Maps) for very close access to trail. The map location from this site is accurate.
