Long Description:
The bridge was placed here in 2014, and is now part of a walking trail through the park and the adjoining subdivision. At present, the gate to the park is rarely unlocked, but it is not a problem to park on the FM 1173 shoulder and walk around the fence up to the bridge. The listed parking coordinates are near where the walking trail enters the subdivision.

This is a Warren Pony Truss bridge, and according to bridgehunter.com, has the following vitals:

Length of largest span: 65.0 ft.

The National Bridge Inventory indicates that the replacement bridge on Plainview Road was put into place in 2009.
