Dodd’s Creek Truss Bridge (Historic Site #28)
Dodd’s Creek Lenticular Truss Bridge is one of many patented truss designs developed in the mid- to late-19th century, this 87-foot lenticular truss bridge features a curved top and bottom chord which forms a lens shape. This bridge originally was located across Cowhouse Creek and later was moved to Dodd’s Creek. In 1990, the Texas Historical Commission and the Texas Department of Transportation recognized the bridge as a historically significant engineering structure. The Dodd’s Creek bridge was moved to this site (Campbell Branch) in 1997 to improve the flow of traffic, protect pedestrians and enhance the Salado Historic District. (RTHL)
