Description 

One in a series of bridges that ran from Shady Grove Road down to Singleton Blvd (Eagle Ford Road) before Loop 12 was built. This was the main north/south route out of West Dallas and Eagle Ford and into what was then desolate countryside. Bonnie and Clyde would have used this road to get out of West Dallas frequently. More photos to come of the other bridges on the route.
