On Wednesday January 27, 2021 TxDOT’s contractor completed the first of four deck pours on the North Main St. Bridge on Panther Island. The deck will provide the final driving surface for the Signature V-Pier Bridge. This is a major milestone for the bridge, moving it one step closer to being open to vehicular traffic. Once all four pours are completed, the final steps will include installing railing and lighting as well as adding striping to the bridge.

The North Main St. Bridge on Panther Island is scheduled to be the 2nd of the 3 Signature V-Pier Bridges to be completed. The first, being the White Settlement Rd. Bridge on Panther Island followed by the Henderson St. Bridge on Panther Island. The reroute that is in place on North Main St. will continue to be utilized by traffic until the completion of this bridge which Is currently scheduled to be open to traffic early summer.
