Caption

The Old Alton Bridge lies just south of Denton, TX. The bridge is an iron truss bridge originally built in the late 1800's to carry horses and the automobiles of the time, which were, of course, much narrower than today's vehicles.

The Old Alton Bridge was in constant use until circa 2001, when it was replaced with the concrete-and-steel bridge you can see next to it. This road is heavilty travelled by commuters, and it was decided that a newer multilane bridge should be put in its place. The new bridge straightens out a sharp curve which still exists on both ends of the old bridge. It was previously necessary to honk your car's horn to see if anyone was coming, which is a less-than-optimal solution for everyday use.
Two other bridge panos, and the narrative which goes with this shoot, available online.
