The 1887 West Sixth Street Bridge (historically known as Pecan Street Bridge) is a three-arch masonry bridge spanning Shoal Creek approximately one-half mile west of the Sixth Street and Congress Avenue intersection. 

The hand-built structure replaced an earlier iron bowstring arch bridge and conformed to the width of the streets to allow for the passage of wagons going in either direction, and
facilitated the installation of tracks for mule-drawn streetcars, which were first used in Austin in 1875.
