Originally a wooden trestle was built in 1903 by the I&GN Railroad and replaced by the current structure around 1940 after flood damaged original bridge. This railroad line ran from Waco to Ft Worth Texas and was in operation until rails were lifted in 1964. Bridge is intact however over 400 ft was removed at the north end and the remaining portion was left as is.
