Notes
  • The first photo seen here is dated March 2, 1909. With a magnifying glass, I can make out part of the builders plate in the foreground. The first line appears to be: "Wfd Mch & Fo... Co." (the portion between the Fo and Co is obscured) for Weatherford Machine and Foundry Company. The next two lines are clear: "BUILDERS 1908" and "WEATHERFORD TEXAS". The last line is largely obscurred but it appears to say "MITCHELL & PIGG PAT'D 1..." with a year at the end. Mitchell & Pigg was a well-known builder of suspension bridges in Texas. I have given this bridge a completion year of 1908 based on the sign, but I have seen other references to 1909 as the year of completion.
  • Similar to 1924 (suspension bridge) - Nocona vicinity, Texas and Jefferson County, Oklahoma, USA. In reference AUB, a picture of the Nocona bridge shows the same white-capped tubular towers. There are obvious differences, however, in the tower cross-bracing.

Notes
  • Legend has it the bridge was burned during a dispute. This likely occurred before 1955. The road that leads to the Texas side of the former crossing is "Burned Out Bridge Road." Follow the image of the derelict tower to see the remains of the bridge.
  • AUB mentions: "In January 1924, a contract was entered into with Nocona Bridge Company for a bridge across Red River, nine miles north of Nocona, connecting Texas and Oklahoma. The plans called for a 700' span, 16' roadway, and the main cables to contain 1,000 No. 9 galvanized wires each. The building of this, [the Austin Bridge Company's] first complete cable bridge, and the experience gained therefrom helped to launch Austin Bridge Company into an interesting and profitable line of work."
  • See (suspension bridge) - Gainesville vicinity, Texas, USA. This Nocona vicinity bridge may be the same bridge I have listed at "Gainesville vicinity, Texas."

Notes
  • The November 1933 issue of The Wisconsin Engineer (a publication of the University of Wisconsin) has an article by C.W.P. Walter about research that was being performed by the University of Wisconsin's Engineering Department: "The particular hardware laden contrivance [in the Engineering Building] is a half-model of the Red River Bridge which carried light highway traffic between Clarksville, Texas, and Idabel, Oklahoma. In the early part of this year movement of the Red River as a result of flood waters washed away one of the intermediate piers supporting the end spans, and cause the cable to drop and be subjected to impact loading. It was contended by the company owning the bridge that the cable was overstressed and injured to such an extent that it would be necessary for the insurance company to replace the cable as well as the pier. A committee... was appointed to investigate the questions involved. While the investigation proceeded the Red River continued to scour away the foundation of the existing piers, ultimately causing the bridge to collapse completely."
  • AUB mentions this bridge very briefly: "In 1928, [Jim Diamond] was employed by Austin Bridge Company as a consultant on the super-structure and cable work for the White River bridge at Des Arc. Later in the same year, he represented the owners as job engineer on the bridge built by the Company across Red River above Clarksville, Texas."
  • The Texas Department of Transportation web site mentions in an article titled "Historic Suspension Bridges: Advent of the State Highway Department": "Five of the eleven suspension bridges built by [Austin Bridge Company] were toll bridges over the Red River. The Red River is notorious for its volatile, melting, red clay banks. The bridge between Clarksville, Texas, and Idabel, Oklahoma, was built by ABC in 1928, and washed out during flooding in 1932."

Otherwise, they are very similar in appearance, both having been built in the same year by the same company.
