*Old U.S. Hwy. 287*

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This is a section of the old route that U.S. Hwy. 287 followed before Richland Chambers Resevoir was constructed. The Old Chambers Creek bridge was just past here just to the South side of the new bridge. If you zoom in you can also see where the old road came out just on the East of the spillway on the map.

Did the old Richland Creek bridge get demolished or was it left for habitat? Like

Don't know about the Richland Creek bridge but I do remember looking to the left from the new bridge and seeing the old one before water covered it when headed to Dallas to see my sister.

That would be the Richland Creek bridge.

Sorry, I'll have to differ with you on that one Jack. Richland Creek is the upper left fork of the lake. I use to do Roustabout work on wells for Exxon by Chambers Creek just off the bridge. The old bridge crossed the mouth of Chambers creek bottom right before it entered the shared valley that became the lake. :-)

I am corrected. The one I am referring to was the Chambers Creek bridge; long and narrow.
