University Drive Bridge – University

Burleson Street, now University Drive, was improved from Park Hill Drive north to Jacksboro Highway under a joint city and county improvement program set up in 1936. The bridge was constructed presumably under the direction of Fort Worth City Engineer D. L. Lewis and County Engineer Stevens. Of reinforced concrete supported by wide piers, the bridge features an arcaded concrete guard rail with decorative end piers. The bridge was extended sensitively by the City of Fort Worth Public Works Department in 1959 when Rockwood Park Drive was constructed underneath; a parallel span is a later addition.
