East Texas students build bridge for humane society

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas animal shelter is getting a new bridge thanks to some East Texas engineering students.

The project was a win-win for LeTourneau university civil engineering students and the Humane Society in Longview. The students spent Saturday building this 12-foot wooden footbridge.

The bridge will span between the Humane Society building and a new space next door, which will serve as the Humane Society's surgical center.

The project gives the students practical application of the skills they will use in their future careers.
