TxDOT Historic Bridge Legacy Program - SH 310 Bridge at Lamar Street and UPRR - Announcement

Thursday, October 04, 2018

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) oversees a Historic Bridge Legacy Program to facilitate the adoption of historic bridges that outlive utility for vehicular service. All bridges available under this program are listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The bridges are owned by TxDOT, cities, or counties and merit special consideration of their potential for preservation in the community. The primary emphasis of the program is to find a new public use for the bridges, such as along a hike-and-bike trail or in a public park.

A historic bridge in Dallas County at SH 310 at Lamar Street crossing Union Pacific Railroad is currently available for adoption. For more information, please contact Shelley Pridgen by phone at: 214-320-6163 or via email at: [email protected] or visit www.txdot.gov, keyword search “adopt a bridge.”

Letters of interest and/or reuse proposals will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on November 9, 2018.

The marketing of this bridge is in compliance with Federal Transportation Requirements under 23 USC 144 (g) for the replacement of historic bridges.
