Reports indicate TXDOT began removing this bridge this weekend.
This vertical lift bridge was moved & put in place over Cedar Bayou in 1967. It was built by Virginia Bridge & Iron Company in 1912 over the St. Francis River at Cody, Lee County, Arkansas. I have searched extensively to find pictures of the bridge at its original location in Arkansas but find none. Looking for help with my search. Thanks! Attached is of the builders plaque and where the plaque is located.
According to http://www.newspapers.com/newspage/6606310/ it was built in 1966, and was relocated from Arkansas.
Does any one know when and who built the bridge
