Long Description:
This bridge once carried traffic over Duck Creek in Sanger, TX, along Sam Bass Rd. Ground was broken on the new sub-courthouse in 2016, while the bridge looked on patiently. The courthouse opened in 2017, and the bridge now stands over a man-made pond that is filled by a pump-driven falls, presumably the "Canyon Falls" which gives its name to the associated subdivision here. There is plenty of parking in the lot, giving easy access to the bridge.
Date Built: 1/1/1925
