West 29th St. Bridge – Austin TX

Description

On October 27, 1938, the City of Austin accepted an aid package from the Public Works Administration for the construction of bridges and extensions of storm sewers not to exceed $132,300. One of the projects the city used the money for was to build a bridge on West 29th Street over Shoal Creek. On December 27, 1938, the city accepted a bid of $48,983.44 from Yarbrough Construction Company for the job. The job was accepted as completed on June 29, 1939. The city installed a brass plate on the bridge to acknowledge the contribution of the PWA, but the plaque is currently missing from the site.
