REGENCY BRIDGE

The Regency Bridge, locally known as the “Swinging Bridge,” is a one-lane suspension bridge over the Colorado River in Texas. It is located at the intersection of Mills County Road 433 and San Saba County Road 137, both gravel roads, near a small community called Regency. The bridge spans the Colorado River between Mills and San Saba counties.

The main span of Regency Bridge is 343 feet (105 m) long, but counting the approach spans, engineers list the bridge’s overall length at 403 feet (123 m). The wooden deck of the bridge is 16 feet (4.9 m) wide. It was built in 1939, with most of the work being done by hand. The original bridge was constructed in 1903 but collapsed under the weight of a herd of cattle. A later bridge built in 1936 washed away in a flood. The current Regency Bridge was restored by James Harris in 1997, with the Governor of Texas, George Bush attending the re-dedication service. This was a major event for the community of around 25 people.

My family and I went to see this bridge and let me say, it was worth the very long drive for it. I got some great pictures on my Canon Camera. When the wind blew, you could feel the bridge move. The railing is very low so be very careful with little ones around the edges of the bridge. 10/10, we would go visit that bridge again

Could you please use my reviews....

REGENCY BRIDGE IS A “MUST VISIT” ATTRACTION FOR MOTORCYCLISTS WHEN THEY’RE ANYWHERE IN THE VACINITY.

Unless you’ve stood out in the middle of Regency Bridge, it’s hard to imagine the feeling of awe you get from the gentle movements of the bridge when the wind blows or someone drives across it.
