Significance: The Houston & Texas Central Railway Underpass was originally constructed in 1910, along with a nearby Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railway Underpass and a Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railroad Underpass, as part of a joint grade separation project by the three companies. It represents an early attempt to eliminate points of conflict where rights-of-way of the dominant nineteenth-century mode of transportation (the railroad) intersected paths of an emerging mode of twentieth-century transportation (the automobile).
