Fort Worth: Panther Island

Postby jrd1964 » 25 Jul 2018 07:05

The project will span 800 acres when completed, which could be in 2028 or later, depending on individual projects within the development. Currently, a project to build 3 bridges, 1 each on North Main, Jacksboro Hwy., and White Settlement Rd., is still coming along, despite a year-long delay. That was because TxDOT wanted to be certain of the structural design of each bridge. The bridges have to be complete before any river channeling or other infrastructure (including riverwalks along each waterway) can begin. The bridges should be complete in early 2020.

Hopefully, by the time stuff is getting up an running on the new Panther Island, downtown will have experienced a solid decade of population growth, employment growth and a steady return of the pedestrian environment.

This city has been idling for way too long!

I prefer Fort Worth's Trinity bridges they are something new compared to most designs and get the job done without the consistent drama we have had with Dallas Trinity bridges.

Fort Worth’s $1B Panther Island project quietly cut from 2018 federal budget

Looks like the city will need to find some of the $$$$ some other way, or wait longer for the Feds to come up with what's needed.

Can Panther Island work without federal funds? Maybe, if Fort Worth plays the long game
