Fort Worth drivers will face detours as crews continue to work on the TRV/Panther Island Bridges project.
Crews are now working on V-Piers for one of the three signature bridges that will be part of the project to build an opening to Panther Island, an urban waterfront community. In the next few weeks, drivers will face detours due to construction on the new North Main Street bridge. Detours will be from North Main Street to North Commerce Street between Northeast Seventh and Northeast 11th.
According to the city, the detour will include one land northbound and one lane southbound with access to local businesses through North Main Street remaining open. The city said drivers can expect the detours to be in place throughout the duration of the North Main Street Bridge construction work.
The TRV/Panther Island Bridges project, which is a combined effort between the Trinity River Vision Authority, Texas Department of Transportation, the city of Fort Worth and the North Central Texas Council of Governments, began in July.
