Created/Published
Documentation compiled after 1968.

Notes
Survey number HAER TX-97
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N567).
Building/structure dates: 1939 initial construction
Significance: A continuous bridge with a suspended span. The unique steel picket fence has a ring motif. Identical to the South San Gabriel River Bridge, except for some variation in the number of I-beams. The bridges are examples of an obsolete bridge technology. Replacing metal trusses at the same locations, the bridges served the needs of a rapidly expanding community; demonstrated the state's progress as it prepared for its Centennial; and met requirements of the nation's strategic defense program.
