Description

The Bosque River Bridge was constructed under a Works Progress Administration work-relief contract between 1940 and 1941. The bridge was as part of a larger project that created a new alignment of Texas State Highway 22 though Bosque County. The W.E. Worrell Company of Austin constructed the bridge and approaches, with work performed by WPA labor. Work began on the bridge in May of 1940 and finished the following December for the final cost of $98.002.88.

This 566 long, steel I-beam bridge crosses the Bosque River west of Meridian, Texas. The bridge consists of a 265’ long four-span continuous span unit over the main channel of the river and 6-50’ simple steel I-beam units used as the minor approach spans. The superstructure rests on concrete supports and carries a 26’ wide roadway. The bridge’s railing is a special steel picket fence and concrete post design.
