Henderson Street Bridge – Henderson

Built in 1930 as part of the original Jacksboro Highway project, the Henderson Street Bridge provided important access to North Fort Worth and northwestern Tarrant County. The four-lane reinforced concrete bridge was built by the City of Fort Worth for $241,000. Credit for the design and construction go to Ira C. Hedrick, Consulting Engineer; D. L. Lewis, City Engineer; C. M. Thelin, Designer; and Frank Parrott, Contractor. A single 124-foot arch gracefully spans the river with concrete piers supporting the long approaches. Concrete sidewalks and an arcaded balustrade railing enhance the bridge, although the original light standards have been removed.
