FM 428 Bridge
Posted May 13, 2022, by Jesse Sharkoman (jesseberube5 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This Bridge turns 100! The Bridge barely predates SH10 which was designated in the area 3 years later. In 1923 SH10 was extended through Fort Worth to Denton, replacing SH 40A. On March 16, 1925, SH 10 was extended north through Pilot Point to Tioga.
