Crews work on V-piers for the White Settlement Road bridge, one of three signature bridges that will serve as gateways to Panther Island, a unique, urban waterfront community.

Work is progressing on the Henderson Street and White Settlement Road bridges.

In mid-July, concrete was poured for the first full-scale V-pier for the White Settlement Bridge. The bridge contractor used 200 cubic yards of concrete. With crews placing the concrete on both legs of the V-pier simultaneously, the pour took several days to complete and cure.

About 15,000 gallons of liquid nitrogen were used to keep the concrete cool as surface temperatures of the truck drums dropped below 40 degrees. Additional pours are anticipated over the next year, with a new pour taking place about every three weeks.

Minimized delay for drivers

In the coming weeks, traffic will be rerouted from North Main Street to North Commerce Street between Northeast Seventh Street and Northeast 11th Street to build the new North Main Street Bridge. The detour will be in place next to the existing roadway to minimize traffic interruption.

The detour will have one lane northbound and one lane southbound. Access to local businesses on North Main Street will be maintained. The detour will be in place through the duration of the North Main Street Bridge construction.

The 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 Street, North Main Street and White Settlement Road.

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