City of Fort Worth: Work begins on White Settlement Bridge superstructure
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.
