Concrete work continues on the White Settlement Bridge.

Significant progress continues on all three of the TxDOT signature bridges on Panther Island. Here are a few highlights:

North Main Street Bridge. TxDOT’s contractor, Texas Sterling, is scheduled to pour the third of four V-piers on the bridge near the end of February. Approximately 210 cubic yards of high-strength concrete will be placed over a 12- to 14-hour period. Due to the cooler weather, the work can be performed during the daylight hours beginning in the early morning. Even though the temperatures are lower, it is anticipated that liquid nitrogen will still be used to help control the temperature of the concrete being placed. The contractor has also started to erect the bridge’s superstructure at the north end of the bridge, which will allow for the construction of box girders that will support the future bridge deck.

White Settlement Bridge. The contractor is installing box girder steel over the first two sets of V-piers on the west side of the bridge. It is anticipated that the contractor will pour the first bottom slab section of the box girders in late February.

Henderson Street Bridge. The contractor has poured two of the eight V-piers on the bridge and has installed most of the reinforced steel on three other V-piers.

Expect to see a lot of progress on the bridges over the next three months.

The Panther Island project, which includes three signature bridges positioned along the to-be-realigned Trinity River, are a collaborative effort between the Trinity River Vision Authority, TxDOT, the City of Fort Worth, the North Central Texas Council of Governments, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Tarrant County.
