A few older photographs here ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/nakrnsm/sets/72157629686381426/with/3675195620/ ), some of which show that the Sabine Street Bridge, built in 1924 and on the National Register of Historic Places, is not of riveted deck girder design but is concrete t-beam, as indicated here ( http://bridgehunter.com/tx/harris/bh50784/ )
These pictures were taken last May, between meetings at a Mass Properties Engineering conference. I had just three hours available, so hopped a bus from the Suburbs, hoofed a couple of miles in the downtown area, and caught the bus back out to the hotel. I tried to reconstruct the route of my whirlwind tour as best I could, but obviously got turned around a bit.
So thanks again for your corrections, which have been incorporated.
I agree, these photos are in the wrong place. These photos appear to be of the Sabine Street Bridge: http://www.bridgehunter.com/tx/harris/bh50784/ which is actually a t-beam.
I have some concerns about this listing:
The May, 2011 photos appear to be of the Sabine Street Bridge over Buffalo Bayou.
The mapped location corresponds to the existing Hogan Street bridge over White Oak Bayou, http://www.flickr.com/photos/nakrnsm/7161689288/in/photostream . I've known and crossed over and under this bridge for years.
Houston doesn't have a "Buffalo Slough".
The existing steel girder bridge is more modern than that described in the "Design", but considerably older than the photos and listing. The railings don't have "urn-type pillars". The girders are welded, not riveted.
