The Story
Opened to traffic in 1932, this Parker through truss bridge spans the
Pecos River, some 4 miles east of Sheffield, Texas, on State Highway 290.
Previously the route was known as US Highway 290 and the Old Spanish Trail Auto Route before that. After completing Interstate 10, traffic rerouted north, and the roadway became the state highway that it is today.

The State Highway Commission built the Pecos River Bridge just north of the old Lancaster Crossing, established in 1849 along with the San Antonio-El Paso Road.

Fort Lancaster was opened just to the east of the Pecos River in 1855 to aid in the safe passage on the road. Of all the frontier forts in Texas, Fort Lancaster was the only US Army Fort ever attacked by indigenous people.

If you stop at the scenic overlook and look to the west, you can still see old wagon wheel ruts and a cut in the bluff that the wagons once traveled through.

Did you know that in 1855 the US Army tested using camels and that all three expeditions passed through Fort Lancaster?
