Camino Real Bridge – Boca Raton FL

Description

Boca Raton, Florida’s historic Camino Real Bridge was constructed with the assistance of federal Public Works Administration (PWA) funds. The PWA provided a $43,363 grant for the project, whose total cost was $94,163. Construction occurred between September 1938 and May 1939. The bridge had been scheduled for demolition and replacement, but due its historic nature it has instead been renovated and is still in use today.

PWA Docket No. [W]1338
