Bridge Documentation

This is one of two railroad bridges sitting next to each other a bit east of the two historic highway bridges in Waco. As such, along with the highway bridges and the other railroad bridge, this historic bridge helps make Waco a good destination for historic bridge enthusiasts.

The bridge is noteworthy as a pin-connected, multi-span structure built by a prominent bridge builder. The bridge consists of three six panel main truss spans and plate girder approaches.
