Watch out for new traffic pattern on Henderson Street

Posted March 4, 2016

Archived Content Information and links provided may no longer be accurate.

As part of the Trinity River Vision/Panther Island Bridges construction, a new traffic pattern is in place on State Hwy. 199/Henderson Street north of the Fort Worth & Western Railroad.

The new traffic pattern opens an extension of Shamrock Avenue that connects to Henderson Street and Cullen Street. Access to Henderson Street from the new Shamrock Avenue extension will only be to and from the Henderson Street travel lanes (no left turn access will be available to or from northbound travel lanes).

The new traffic pattern is needed to allow crews to continue building the Henderson Street Bridge structure over the Fort Worth & Western Railroad tracks.

The $65.5 million TRV/Panther Island Bridges project is a collaborative effort between the Trinity River Vision Authority, Texas Department of Transportation, the City of Fort Worth and the North Central Texas Council of Governments. This project will enhance the Trinity River by building three new V-pier bridges on Henderson, North Main Street and White Settlement Road. Overall project completion is scheduled in 2018.

Project information is available and includes real-time camera feeds showing construction progress, information on the innovative bridge design and modern roundabouts, and detour maps.
