Adams Ave Overpass
The Adams Avenue Overpass is a 285 foot long steel stringer bridge that takes West Adams Avenue over multiple tracks of the former Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway (now BNSF Railway) in Temple, Texas. The bridge, which replaced an existing timber trestle structure, consists of six spans of steel I-beams resting on concrete abutments and bents. The United States Bureau of Public Roads provided funding for the bridge through a federal aid grade crossing program. The Texas Highway Department designed the bridge which was built by the Austin Bridge Company between July 1938 and April 1939 at a cost of $113,735.01. The bridge is currently configured as a one way road for four lanes of westbound traffic.
