Notes
  • All I have to go on here is the photo. It is marked only as "Red River Valley". The towers strongly resemble other Austin Bridge Company suspension bridges. Upon close inspection of the photograph this bridge appears to have at least two main spans.
  • See 1914 98th Meridian - Byers vicinity, Texas, USA. The bridge pictured here may be the "98th Meridian" bridge at Byers, Texas across the Red River. AUB describes the Byers bridge, "This bridge, three spans of 567' each, one side span of 107', and a 16' roadway, had originally been built in 1914."
