HIDDEN FilSTOHY NAME OF SUBJECT South Seguin Avenue Railroad Underpass, New Braunfels BACKGROUND This year marks the 75th anniversary of the grand opening of the South Seguin Avenue Railroad Underpass. At noon on July 29,1936, the new underpass was opened to vehicles and pedestrians, according to the New Braunfels Herald Before it was built, travelers on South Seguin drove up a slight incline to cross the Missouri-Pacific (formerly the International & Great Northern) railroad tracks. A 1930s photograph at shows that grade crossing. A proposed underpass on Seguin, also state Highway No 46, promised a safe and unrestricted passageway beneath the tracks into downtown New Braunfels In 1935, the Works Progress Administration allocated $82,000 in federal funds to the State Highway Department for the underpass. In NovetTiber 1935, Austin Bridge Co. of Dallas won the state construction contract with a low bid of $72,855.80. New Braunfels Board of City Commissioners agreed to move all utility lines. Photo courtesy ol Texashiqhwayman com Seguin Avenue underpass circa 1935 from the TxDOT photo archive, Early in 1936, construction on the underpass began with local labor and locally quarried limestone. Temporary railroad tracks were laid and street traffic detoured along East Faust Street to Comal Avenue to Hampe Street, The Depression-era WPA project provided jobs for about 80 men from January-July 1936. The new underpass, with its dramatic dip and limestone walls, represented "an unusual feat of engineering as the project is located on a slight curve of the railroad," according to the Herald The underpass currently is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. —^ Marilyn Kuehler Have you seen a (jiece o!
