Description 

In 1929 and 1930 flood control levees were constructed along the West and Elm Forks and Main Stem of the Trinity River through central Dallas. The river was diverted from its natural course to flow through the resulting channel.

A total of five new steel stringer viaducts with concrete decks and concrete balustrade rails were constructed from levee to levee across the channel.

google street view shows all bridges are new and identical. the piers are not the same as in 3D view. i never took pictures of this bridge either because it was new and i was looking for old bridges and this one didnt catch my eye
