Notes
Survey number HAER TX-84
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N570).
Significance: The Decatur Street Bridge is one of very few masonry highway bridges in active use in Texas. The builders accommodated the geometry of a dramatic skew by extending the voussoirs beyond the spandrels, thereby creating an unusual sawtooth effect. The bridge is scheduled for replacement in 2001.
