Stephenville Crossing Bridge
The Stephenville Crossing Bridge features ornate decoration on the portal struts and it is one of the better examples of pin-connected Pratt through truss construction in Texas. Fabricated by a national bridge building company, this bridge was probably once common to the American built environment. Before relocation in 1996, it was one of four remaining bridges employing a pin-connected Pratt through truss in Hamilton County.
