Happens by the Jonesboro bridge last weekend. Curious if the route and it's importance last century.
Bridge is in really rough shape, but still there for now.
Just "discovered" this abandoned bowstring bridge while searching the internet for information on the Bulman Bridge--another bowstring bridge in Texas. The information on this bridge is quite obscure, but as per this website: http://www.kingbridgeco.com/hamilton,_tx.htm, here is what it says, "Jonesboro bridge (Map #1) - This 64 foot bowstring bridge is located on the Leon River below the new highway 36 bridge on CR 431. This bridge was left in place and bypassed by a county bridge replacement project in 1988. It was determined to be eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historical Places in the original bridge survey. The bridge has suffered from vandalism but still remains largely intact." So, any other info on this bridge is welcome plus any photos.
