Texas Sterling, the Texas Department of Transportation’s contractor for the Panther Island bridges, has been making major progress on the new White Settlement Bridge.
The eighth and final concrete V-pier pour was completed in May, and the contractor has started constructing the superstructure that will allow for the construction of the deck structure — the part of the bridge motorists will drive on. The contractor is currently working on both the east and west ends of the bridge.
The new bridge will serve as a connector across a new bypass channel and over the Trinity River. The bridge will join its partners at Main Street and Henderson Street as one of Fort Worth’s three iconic V-pier bridges.
The Panther Island project is a collaborative effort between the Trinity River Vision Authority, TxDOT, the City of Fort Worth, North Central Texas Council of Governments, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Tarrant County.
