Texas and Pacific Railway Cedar St. Underpass
The Abilene Reporter-News discusses a WPA project undertaken in 1936, one which helped to unify downtown Abilene:
“One of the most practical projects, still affecting thousands of Abilenians each day, was the raising of the railroad tracks in downtown Abilene in 1936 and the building of underpasses. The underpasses allowed motorists and pedestrians access between the city’s north and south sides without waiting for trains to pass.”
