Williamson Avenue Underpass – Winslow AZ

Description

The Williamson Avenue underpass beneath the Santa Fe railway line was built with the aid of the Work Progress Administration (WPA), c 1937.

“Construction of the Williamson Avenue underpass was a fine example of cooperating agencies (Works Progress Administration, Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, the State of Arizona, and the City of Winslow) to fund and develop an important engineered structure to improve Winslow’s traffic flow.”

The underpass has been repainted in recent years, probably as part of Winslow’s effort to attract more tourists.
