Concrete pours continue along Main Street north of downtown as the new bridge takes shape.

Driving up North Main Street from downtown, regular progress can be seen on the new signature V-pier bridges that are part of the Panther Island project.

The new bridge will serve as a connector across a new bypass channel and over the Trinity River to the historic Stockyards and northside neighborhoods. The bridge will join its bigger partners at White Settlement Road and Henderson Street as one of Fort Worth’s three bold, iconic structures, signature V-pier bridges.

Check out the most recent progress on the North Main Street Bridge:

  • Construction of abutment No. 1 has been completed to support the ends of the bridge. This area has also been backfilled and compacted.
  • The contractor has begun installing “falsework,” or temporary structure to support the steel reinforcement of pier bent No. 2.
  • The contractor poured the first two pier columns to support the V-pier structures on March 7. Approximately 120 cubic yards of concrete was used.
  • The final two pier columns will be poured mid to late April at pier bent No. 3, bringing a total of four pier columns to the bridge. The bridges at White Settlement and Henderson Streets will each have eight pier columns.
  • Abutment No. 4’s pier cap was poured on March 26 and used approximately 65 cubic yards of concrete.
  • The mechanically stabilized earth walls for abutment No. 4 on the south end of the bridge are under construction.
  • Concrete has been poured for the historic sidewalk in front of Texas Refinery Corp. Look for special Panther Island Red brick pavers manufactured by Acme Brick to be installed on top of the sidewalk.
