Cane Creek Bridges of Roxton
Roxton, Texas
Lamar County

SW of Paris, Texas

Photographer's Note:
" Roxton was very interesting to me. The town appears to have put some effort into preserving what they have.

These bridges are within about a 100-150 yard stretch of creek at the north side of town. The highway is just a standard concrete bridge. Supports to an old wooden bridge are visible in the water." - Mike Price, April 14, 2008

Located on FM 38 as you enter the town from the north, this bridge is one of only three to exist in Texas - a WPA railroad bridge that was built using bricks and mortar. The rail line that once crossed over the small but scenic Denton Creek has been dismantled, and nature is slowly but surely growing over this beautiful example of Depression architecture. - Robin Jett 1-15-04
