Summary

Significance: The Clear Fork of the Brazos Suspension bridge is one of seven surviving bridges in Texas that predate 1940. As one of three examples of the work by William Flinn of Weatherford, Texas, it preserves information about the deck and stiffening truss of a similar, but altered, Flinn-Moyer bridge at San Saba, Texas. The Clear Fork bridge was modified in 1926 by the Austin Bridge Company of Dallas, Texas.
