Larry Monroe Forever Bridge

The Larry Monroe Forever Bridge is a memorial to Austin broadcaster and musical scholar Larry Monroe. The small bridge's low walls on either side of the road are decorated with sculpted mosaic tiles relating to Monroe and the music that he played on Austin radio for more than 30 years. Artist Stefanie Disefano designed the project.

It's not too far from Little Stacy Neighborhood Park.
