FORT WORTH - Construction will begin in late summer 2014 on three signature bridges of the Trinity River Vision project. Expected completion of the project is estimated for 2018.

The project will include the construction of three V-Pier bridges at Henderson St., North Main St. and White Settlement Rd. The bridges will have ten-foot pedestrian-lit sidewalks, bicycle facilities and enhanced landscaping. The new bridges also will serve as the gateways to Panther Island, an urban waterfront community.

The Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Transportation Commission awarded the $65.5 million contract to Texas Sterling Construction on May 29.

The City of Fort Worth designed project includes the use of modern roundabout intersections on Henderson and White Settlement that will include sculptures as their centerpieces.

The three signature bridges positioned along the future realigned Trinity River are a collaborative effort between the Trinity River Vision Authority, TxDOT, Tarrant County, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, City of Fort Worth and North Central Texas Council of Governments.
