Constructed in 1925 when the Bankhead Highway was paved. The Bankhead was also Texas Highway 1 and the original US Highway 80 route. The bridge is located on a section that was bypassed when the highway, by then US 180, was straightened and rebuilt in the 1950s.
The bridge and old roadway continue to be used as an internal ranch road.
