San Antonio River Bridge
Posted January 31, 2008, by Will (jrzyboyinsatx [at] aol [dot] com)

The bridge you're referring to is also known as the Labatt Road bridge. It has since been moved and restored., now residing along a hike and bike trail outside Floresville. A new, concrete bridge sits in its original place.
