The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) announces the availability of a historic single span Warren pony
truss bridge for relocation and preservation in compliance with the U.S. Secretary of Interior’s Standards for
Treatment of Historic Properties. The bridge is located on County Road (CR) 222 at the Leon River approximately

The bridge was built in 1906. It consists of a Warren Pony Truss on concrete piers. It has an overall width of 11’-9”
