Old US277 - Amistad Reservoir

Created 1-November-2007.


The Old US277 crossing through the Amistad Reservoir was actually as set of bridges with interconnecting roadway for the North and South San Pedro Creeks. The creek bridges are the formed concrete type as seen in the photo above .The crossing was covered during the flooding of the reservoir. If the lake level is low enough then the full existing crossing would be exposed. Recreational areas are available on both sides of the lake.
