Going as far back as I can remember, this bridge in Hwy 83 between Wellington and Shamrock, Texas has fascinated me. Several months back, I stopped and took some still pictures of it, and this month saw they were moving traffic over to the other side of the road and took the video.
I have nothing against progress, but wanted to document something I’ve seen and driven over for 50+ years. It will be sad to see it torn down, but the Highway Department already had it restricted to one lane because of its narrowness.
A new full-size bridge will increase safety, especially at night.
