Nope! 3 Crazy Texas Bridges Some People Wont Go On!
We have some pretty awesome bridges here in Texas. With a state this big, you know there are plenty of bridges in the Lone Star State. So, the question might come up. Is there a bridge in Texas you won't cross? Have you ever encountered a bridge that made you take a 2nd look? A bridge so crazy that you thought 'Nope, not doing this one!" Let's take a look at 3 bridges that might make you turn around!
#1 THE RAINBOW BRIDGE
- Location: Port Arthur, Texas
- Why people won't get on it? : TOO STEEP!
The Rainbow Bridge is located in Port Arthur, Texas, and is known as the STEEPEST BRIDGE IN TEXAS.
People who have been on it say it's all about that INCLINE! The 7,760-foot-wide bridge stretched over the Neches River with a clearance of 177 feet and a span of 680 feet. The STEEP incline has a 5 percent grade for every 100 feet which means it can be pretty intimidating. And, if you break down on the bridge well, there is no side clearance to move over. They say it was scarier back in the day when the bridge was a 2 way.
#2 THE REGENCY BRIDGE BRIDGE IN RICHLAND SPRINGS TEXAS
- Location: Richland Springs, Texas
- Why people won't get on it? : BECAUSE IT MOVES WHILE YOU ARE ON IT!
The Regency Bridge located in Richland, Texas looks like an ordinary bridge until you look really close. Yep, it's a suspension bridge. This means the bridge MOVES as you move over it in your car. Yep, I'm out on this one. I don't need any bridge moving with me. I don't need the 4D experience when I'm on a bridge. lol
This bridge is just north of Richland Springs, Texas, and crosses over the Colorado River here in Texas. It was built in 1939. The 'Swinging Bridge' is located at the intersection of Mills County Road 433 and San Saba County Road 137, both gravel roads, near a small community called Regency. The bridge spans the Colorado River between Mills and San Saba counties. The bridge is between San Angelo, Texas, and Waco.
#3 THE PECOS RIVER HIGHBRIDGE IN COMSTOCK, TEXAS
- Location: Comstock, Texas
- Why people won't get on it? : BECAUSE IT IS TOO DAMN TALL!
Well, no explanation is needed on why some people won't get on this bridge. It simply is the TALLEST bridge in Texas. That fact alone will stop many from crossing the bridge.
The Pecos River Highbridge is located in Comstock, Texas. It is 270 Feet above the water which makes it the tallest BRIDGE in Texas!
