Rector Road Bridge

Rector Road Bridge is a historic truss bridge in Denton, Texas. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.

It is a 5-panel, pinned Pratt through-truss bridge with I-beam approach spans. It is 112 feet (34 m) in total length, with the primary span 80 feet (24 m) in length.

It was built by the Austin Brothers Company in 1907-08 to span Clear Creek near Sanger, Texas, costing $1,664. Frank and George Austin were then the Atlanta and Dallas agents of the George E. King Bridge Company, although they later started their own bridge fabrication plant.

It was later moved to the John Guyer High School at 7501 Teasley Lane in Denton.
