Samuels Avenue Bridge/ Decatur Avenue Bridge – Decatur

A reinforced concrete bridge at Samuels Avenue, now Decatur Avenue, was completed in February, 1914; the June flood of 1915 damaged it. The present two-lane highway bridge over the Trinity River is supported by wide concrete piers and features concrete arcaded guard railings. It is a style more common during the 1920s and 1930s. Further research in city records may indicate the exact date of construction.
