The new fixed bridge, in Matagorda, in Matagorda County, is in operation and the swing bridge no longer exists.

Note: The uglybridges.com listing for Matagorda County is filled with bridges and locations that are not even near Matagorda County.

The swing bridge on Farm-to-Market Road 2031 is in Matagorda County NOT Marion County. It will be replaced by a fixed-span bridge which is under construction.
