    My wife and I drove across the bridge north to south on Saturday night at 6:17 pm….I videoed the drive across….I made a screenshot of the damage, which we didn’t see at the time….if you want it, tell me how to send it to you….I posted the entire 1:39 video on Facebook on the Backroads of Texas page if you want to view it …I hope you fix it soon because there are hundreds of views of my video there and many who want to come see the bridge….I hope this helps in some way.

      Could you upload it to youtube?
      I would like to see it!

      I just found out it was closed today as I was planning some back roads to get from Dallas (area) to Terlingua.

    Can anyone update on if this bridge is still closed ?

      The bridge is presently closed, but commissioners have said TxDOT may begin repairs this month.

      That I haven’t heard, you may have to call the county for that info.

    I hope I will continue to see updates here. Maybe TXDOT post status somewhere?

    I just watched a TCR rerun story on the bridge. MANY years ago, my now deceased wife and I made a diversion to travel the bridge while we were in the area. Cherished memories.

      We will definitely post when we have any update from the county or TxDOT. When my family first moved here, we visited the bridge to do cover photos for the Visitor’s Guide, and my youngest was stone frozen with terror standing on that thing! 🙂

    I was out here December 31st 2020 and yes the bridge is still closed but it’s still worth the trip to see the old bridge and surrounding views.

    We were there 1-31-21 and it was closed to vehicle traffic but you can walk across it. Damage has not been repaired.

    Is the bridge still closed to vehicles? We were hoping to drive there next week.

      We haven’t heard otherwise from the Commissioners Court meetings.

    As of April 7, 2021, the bridge is still closed to traffic.
