Through the years: Crossing the Sabine River between Bon Weir, Texas and Merryville, Louisiana

 

1931. On the Sabine River between Merryville, Louisiana and Bon Weir, Texas. From The Beaumont Enterprise, "The old hand-powered ferry which took its departure with the erection of the bridge. This is one of the old and historical crossings of the Sabine river."

Bridge today, as part of US Hwy. 190 system.  Not sure when the bridge was constructed... Looked a good bit online but did not find a date pinpointed.  Feel free to comment if you know more about this bridge.  NOTE:  We took this photo from the air this past December... The river was at flood stage at this time... So it may appear quite high in these photos because it is quite high.

  1. I remember the old bridge…I think this bridge was built in the late 70’s or very early 80’s.

  2. My grandfather, James Riley of Woodville was the engineer over this bridge. It was built in 1976 in a joint effort of the Texas and Louisiana Highway Departments. At the same time that this bridge was built the State of Louisiana moved and built 190 up higher because of frequent flooding between the river and Merryville. If you look closely to the right after going around the curve and cross the first bridge you can see remnants of the old road near the railroad tracks.

  3. I personally only had 2 things to be removed off my credit report, as I see some people had good reviews about TROVIAN CREDIT REPAIR, I don’t see how unless they were made up. Mine was simple because I had couple of things that needs to be removed I was concern about my credit, so I contacted Trovian Teams and they understand my concerns about my credit issues and went ahead with the repairing process in less than 5days the credit bureaus stated they have validated the correction on my credit files with a high score, the issues I needed removed and I got approved for my first home purchase. They are good in fixing credit issues and I will like everyone out there to contact them now TROVIANCREDITREPAIR@GMAIL.COM/ +1 (505) 926 3648.
