Sabine River bridge
Posted June 22, 2010, by Noel Hollyfield

The bridge was built in 1938 (see Louisiana statistics for bridge).

I was there on opening day.A number of marching bands were there to celebrate the bridge opening.I remember that the high school band from Eunice Louisiana was one of them.
