Does any one have older pictures of this bridge when it was in use?
It was a 1 1/2 lane slab with a mowed shoulder, when two vehicles met, one was supposed to yield. lol. The state came in and built a FM road over the slab roadbed, moved the road a little to go around the old bridge. I've lived in Navarro Co all my life and remember many serious accidents that occurred on this bridge. Everything from head-on collisions to drunks hitting the sides and being flipped over in the creek. I'm glad they finally gave the poor bridge some rest. You are right, it is very narrow.
This bridge seems too narrow to carry a big road. How could vehicles drive across this bridge before being bypassed?
