Clifton Whipple Truss Bridge 0001b

Clifton Whipple Truss Bridge 0001b

Bosque County, Texas
31 47.585' N 97 34.437' W
Directions: Start at the intersection of CR-3112 and Moore Street. Go .4 miles north on CR-3112. Turn right and go 150 yards to the bridge.

Historical Marker: Built in 1884 by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio, at a cost of $6,465, this bridge spans 150 feet across the North Bosque River. This type of bridge, called a Whipple truss, was named for its designer. One of the few remaining Whipple truss bridges in the state, it opened up travel routes from the south and west to the north and east. Withstanding many floods, the bridge provided an important transportation connection for Bosque County residents from 1884 to 1941 when traffic was routed west of the Bosque River to the newly constructed Highway 6.
