After one year, nine months and 18 days the iconic yellow Rio Hondo mechanical lift bridge was re-opened to vehicular traffic on July 13, 2018. TxDOT’s estimated time to complete the project was 18 to 24 months. Businesses that survived the 20 month bridge closure were quoted as saying “Thank you Jesus!”. The road is open and the town has been re-united.
