Overview of UnderpassesIllustration by Evan Kalish
A set of grade-separation underpasses was constructed in 1939 with the assistance of the United States Bureau of Public Roads. Two underpasses allow railroad traffic to span Denrock Ave.; one underpass brings Railroad St. (U.S. 87) under rail traffic.
