Texas Historic Bridge
Roy B. Inks Bridge
The Inks Bridge was designed by the Texas Highway Department's Bridge Division during the fall of 1935. It is composed of four 200-foot Parker truss spans resting on concrete "cutwater” piers. The construction contract was awarded to the Austin Bridge Company in January of 1936, and the new bridge was opened to traffic on September 16, 1936.
The bridge features the original west side pedestrian walkway with lattice railings and all-riveted construction typical of the 1930s. In 2006, the Texas Department of Transportation added a new, wider pedestrian walkway to the east side in conjunction with this bridge rehabilitation project.
Erected 2006 by Texas
