Created/Published
Documentation compiled after 1968.

Notes
Survey number HAER TX-96
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N568).
Building/structure dates: 1939 initial construction
Significance: Continuous steel girder bridges with suspended spans. The unique steel picket fence has a ring motif. Identical to the North San Gabriel River Bridge, except for some variation in the number of I-beams. The bridges are examples of an obsolete bridge technology. The bridges replaced 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.
