International–Great Northern Railroad Underpass – Austin TX

Description

On January 9, 1936, the Austin City Council adopted a resolution to request the Texas State Highway Commission to seek federal funds to separate the grade of Enfield Road from the International–Great Northern Railroad tracks. The Highway Commission with assistance from the United States Bureau of Public Roads built an underpass to take Enfield Road beneath the train tracks.
