AUSTIN -- The Texas Historical Commission is working closely with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Historic Bridge Foundation to engage Texans in conversation about historic bridges. The groups will hold an open house on Tuesday, July 29, in the Emmie Seele Faust Memorial Library in New Braunfels to discuss bridges constructed between 1945 and 1965, a period marked by innovative designs and experiments with concrete and steel.

The open house will offer the public an opportunity to view photos of the historic bridges, ask questions of those involved in the process, and provide input about significance and future steps. Texas retains about 15,000 bridges built during the post-World War II period, and the Texas Historical Commission, TxDOT, and Historic Bridge Foundation are seeking input about which structures best represent that era’s important technological advances.

Through a forthcoming agreement between the groups, plans are under way to identify the most significant of the National Register of Historic Places-eligible bridges and what steps might be taken to mitigate the loss of others in the future. Public input is a critical part of the project.
