Bridge rehab plans await Fort Worth City Council vote

A. Lee Graham



Nine Fort Worth bridge locations could receive repair funding if the City Council approves a project contract.


The proposal is set for consideration at this week’s regular council meeting. Pre-council begins at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday Aug. 20, with the regular meeting starting at 10 a.m. at City Hall, 1000 Throckmorton St.


The council is expected to consider approving a $384,000 contract with Gibson and Associates Inc. for bridge repair and rehabilitation. If approved, several bridges would be improved, including East Northside Drive Bridge over the Trinity River, Overton Park Road Bridge over a Trinity River tributary and the Old Denton Road Bridge over Henrietta Creek.


Project funding was part of the current city budget’s general fund.
