As a child I used to fish and swim under this bridge.My mom and Dad lived at 303 E. Kelly. My parents names were Willard & Lucille Schutte.In the 80's their house burnt down so they sold the property to Wes Johnson and moved to Galveston tx. where my dad passed away in 1985 and mom in 2009.She always wanted to return there because of all the fond memeries.

This bridge was closed down with the purpose of not being opened ever again about 2 months ago. The small one that went over the little branch(there's actually 2 bridges here, one right after the other) had structural damage that they said would cost too much to repair(they had done some work on it a few years ago). They even closed off the walking part of it. They are suppose to build a new bridge up stream (just downstream of where the Dewitt bridge is that has been closed down for several years) in about 2009. Yep, right now there are 3 bridges closed over Joachim in DeSoto(July 2007)
