North Main bridge detour begins this weekend

North Main bridge detour begins this weekendThe Texas Department of Transportation will detour northbound and southbound North Main Street to North Commerce Street starting at 3 p.m. Aug.19. The detour will be completed by 6 a.m. Aug. 21, weather permitting.

The detour is necessary for the construction of the new Panther Island North Main Street bridge. Access to local businesses on North Main Street will be maintained, and the detour will continue through the duration of the project.

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 (TRVA), TxDOT, the City of Fort Worth, the North Central Texas Council of Governments, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Tarrant County.

This project will include the construction of three unique V-pier bridges at Henderson Street, North Main Street and White Settlement Road. The bridges will have 10-foot sidewalks, bicycle facilities and enhanced landscaping. The new bridges will also serve as the gateways to Panther Island, an urban waterfront community.
