4th Street Ramp

I don't think this thing is this old. I REMEMBER ABSOLUTELY driving on the old Texas Viaduct. This ramp is part of the replacement project. The old Texas Viaduct was paved with wooden Cobble (settes...blocks) it was terrible.

I want to think it was after my wife and I moved to Bowie County in the eighties. I am absolutely sure I was not driving in Texarkana in 1975. Pretty much the pasture was my limit in 1975. I was 14 then.

I cannot imagine my parents tolerating me driving on it as bad as it was. That puts it into the early eighties. It MIGHT have been before we moved to the area. My wife and I did go to Texarkana a few times before we moved there...

Texarkana Bridge

If there are too many modern bridges added on this site, we should probably create a new website which could have a name called "Modern Bridges of the United States." We should rather forbid Sheldon adding modern bridges, and rather put him on a site where he can post "Modern" bridges. I probably know why he's adding modern bridges. It is because he wants to know the year they were built. Now I know the reason.
