Thanks Scott!

Good to see more Texas spans on here. We know there are a lot of them just haven't seen as much as some states. Keep up the good work!

If you go to street view, and pan left of the bridge you can see the walk bridge that has similar styling. I will get further pics hopefully by the weekend.

Do my eyes deceive me or is this a Bedstead with a walkway on one side? Very unusual little span and the arch lattice railing is just special. Would love to know the history of this bridge.

This is a beautiful little bridge! Would love to see some additional detail photos of the truss, and also the railing.
