County: Canadian River Bridge
This Canadian River Bridge is the one with my
video on YouTube.
This 1926 bridge has thirty pony sections end-to-end making it almost
2,500 feet long. At this point, the
Canadian is very, very wide but not too deep.
As the bridge has only one narrow lane and is so-o-o long, one can't
see the other end if there is someone coming the other way when you
enter. There has to have been many occasions where two travelers could
be on the bridge where both vehicles were towing stock trailers or
such. Can you imagine backing a stock trailer on this narrow bridge
for even 100 feet? There is certainly no turn around point at mid-span.
in its purpose to preserve historic, endangered and vanishing Texas,
asks that anyone wishing to share their local history, stories,
and vintage/historic photos, please contact
