Bridge Now Has Weight Restrictions


by: Kristen Guilfoos

You will have to pay if you drive over the Frio Draw Bridge in Hereford with a truck that's too heavy.

Troopers are issuing tickets to those who drive on the bridge in a truck with axel or tandem axel weights of more than 17,500 pounds. This rule is in place for the US 385 bridge until it is replaced.

You can use FM 2943 East of Hereford as a detour.

A contractor has been selected and construction work could start as early as this fall.
