San Antonio's population tripled to 161,000 between 1900 and 1920. Commercial and residential development boomed, and automobiles and streetcars clogged narrow thoroughfares. Local leaders recognized the need to modernize the outdated infrastructure and began a massive project to rebuild the city. During the years just before and after World War I streets were widened and extended, new bridges built, and the meandering San Antonio River straightened to relieve flooding that periodically devastated riverside homes and businesses. At this location a large bend in the river was replaced with a bypass channel, and the Navarro Street Bridge was constructed to ease travel to suburbs north of downtown. The old river channel was filled to create a large vacant tract of land that later became the site of the city's Municipal Auditorium.
