Geocache Description:

This is the Knox County cache in a twelve part series of caches highlighting historical locations in the twelve counties of the Boy Scout’s North West Texas Council. Each cache is themed with a point in the Scout Law. This was done as my Eagle Project.

This bridge has stood the test of time! It was build back in the late 1930’s to replace the quickly deteriorating main bridge, the supports of which as still visible. As a credit to the bridges construction, it has only need repairs once. In 1985 Texas Highway Department repaired damage to lateral struts by heating and straightening the members. The Brazos River bridge is one of only seven continuous through truss bridges surviving in Texas. It is one of only five such bridges built before World War II. It is the only surviving continuous truss bridge in the state with parallel top and bottom chords. It is also one of only three metal truss highway bridges surviving in Texas exhibiting Type P concrete and steel approach railing. Happy hunting!
