Marker on Richard Moya Park, Burleson Road, Austin, Texas:
structure was originally part of a six-span bridge across the Colorado River at
Congress Avenue in Austin. Constructed there in 1884,
it was designed by the King Iron Bridge and Manufacturing Co. of Cleveland, Ohio.
In 1910 it was dismantled and placed in storage. Five years later three spans
were rebuilt here but destroyed the same year in a flood. The current bridge,
comprised of the remaining spans, was completed in 1922.
