Significance: The first Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railway Underpass at East Rosedale Avenue was constructed in 1910, along with the nearby Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railroad Underpass and the Houston & Texas Central Railway Underpass, as part of a joint grade separation project by the three companies. Reconstruction of the structure in 1936 was part of a systematic attempt by the Texas Highway Department and the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads to improve urban-area grade separation structures in response to the explosive growth of automobile and truck traffic during the 1920s and 1930s.
