Notes
  • Tony King believes he found the former location of this bridge a few hundred yards south of the I-20 Brazos River crossing west of Weatherford. This location is near a road named "Brannon Bridge Circle." Tony writes: "Just downstream from the modern Interstate 20 bridge in western Parker County, I've noticed a concrete and iron structure, and happened to take a photo of it recently. I've noticed the structure a couple of times in the past (most recently in May of 2007) while hiking a well-worn foot/ATV path that parallels the west bank of the river as it flows almost due south from the Interstate to Meeks Bend." The structure in Tony's photo appears to be a pier or support footing. The coordinates given here are Tony's approximation of the location of the structure.
  • Built as part of the same contract as the Tin Top bridge.
  • Similar to 1906 Tin Top (Hightower Valley) - Tin Top, Texas, USA.

Principals:Austin Bridge Co.

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."
