What a great find, someone should rescue this old truck, It looks Like it still has a lot of life to live.

Greetz, henry

I have fantasized about walking on that old bridge since I was for or 5 years. An old friend and are going to do it this fall when he moves back to Dallas.. Unless the drought ends in a monthly long monsoon.

Don't see that happening.

It floors me how you can see the original creek veins that once gave life to ol Ray. When I was growing up I heard stories of old houses, cars, construction equipment, and many other ghost roads-bridges that still existed underneath the water. Personally I've never seen anything but this bridge, and Rockwall's old 66 counterpart. But I do believe them to be ture, at least, for the most part, especially the constuction equipment. The construction of Rowlett's section of Ray Hubbard wasn't ever completed. The Army Core of Engineers had to abandon the project after a non-stop rain storm that lasted like 3 months, or so. Obviously this is why today it's the largest section affected by the drought. Its ironic that too much rain caused it's pre-mature birth, and now almost a complete lack of is it's cause of demise. Anyway, the old Highway bridge in Rockwall was much larger, and elevated than Main St's. Only half of theirs remained after Ray was finished, but it was left open to the public for fishing and viewing, and did so for many years. However I'm pretty it no longer exist now.
