Bridge Documentation

This is one of two historic bridges that were relocated and preserved in a small park named the Rockdale Bridge Park. The relocated bridges sit on the ground as exhibits. This bridge is an example of a standard early 20th Century rural Texas pony truss bridge. Formerly Located at CR 429 over San Gabriel River (30.709643, -97.080947) the bridge was replaced in 2003 by a new bridge and moved here.
