Celebrating 111 years this February 2021, The Houston Street Viaduct opened as “The world’s longest cement structure of it’s kind.” (Not sure what that means…) As the years passed this noble bridge proved to be the first bridge to successfully withstand the flooding torrents of the Trinity River. Still standing proud, this bridge and its 4 siblings designed by engineer JF Witt transformed the cities of Dallas and Oak Cliff by providing sound and reliable crossing. Today, millions of commuters cross this bridge without giving it a second thought.
