Residents get new CR 404 bridge in south Burnet County, replaces Gridiron Bridge

DOUBLE HORN — Since late November when the Gridiron Bridge was closed, Pauline Carrington had to take the long way from her home on CR 404 to reach her job in Marble Falls.

She had to drive to Texas 71, then go north on U.S. 281 after the old bridge near her house was removed and the state started building a new one.

The bridge is now open, much to the relief of residents who said they had to spend extra on gas to take alternate routes. The old bridge was moved to Johnson Park in Marble Falls. Courtesy photo
