GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- The old Sherman Road Bridge near Whitesboro is no longer, but it’s not going away for good. Crews are moving the old steel bridge out to install a new concrete structure that will be about six feet higher.

The old bridge will still be in use because it's one of only two steel truss bridges left in Precinct 3 of Grayson County.

"This one was built in 1935, and they're taking it out, moving it to Whitesboro to put in the city park. It's an historical bridge. We will set it up as a walking bridge in Whitesboro,” Grayson County Commissioner Precinct 3 Jackie Crisp said.

All the shuffling will cost about $365,000, and everything should be ready for use in about two months.
