DALLAS — Dallas Area Rapid Transit has regularly sold off end-of-life buses or excess parcels of land. But this time the agency has a piece of railroading history on the market: a bridge.
Removal of the bridge is required to accommodate DART’s new Silver Line Regional Rail project. Currently, the bridge is a single-track truss bridge which has been in disuse for about 30 years.
White Rock Creek Bridge is a National Register of Historic Places-eligible structure on the former Cotton Belt corridor spanning White Rock Creek. The bridge is a 125-foot, single span, Warren truss manufactured by the American Bridge Co. in 1917.
The bridge is offered for $1 with the condition that the removal of the bridge components from DART property shall be at the sole expense and responsibility of the recipient of the bridge. This offer is available until Aug. 13, 2021.
If interested this bridge for reuse elsewhere, conservation, curation, or other preservation-related uses, please contact Victor Ibewuike with DART at 214-749-2821 or Ibewuike@dart.org.
