Houston Street Viaduct

Dallas County

Spans the Trinity River in Dallas, Texas

 

History

Built in 1910, one source claims that this was the longest concrete bridge for a short peroid of time. This open spandrel arch bridge spans the Trinity River. It is between I-30 and I-35E and runs next to the Jefferson Street bridge. The Houston Avenue bridge carries southbound traffic, while the Jefferson Street bridge, which is newer, carries northbound traffic.
