Sounds super cost effective.

 

Comparing this construction with that of the beautiful and innovative W7th arch bridge is instructive.

Part of Main Street to close, for next 3 years, as work revs up on Panther Island bridges.

The photograph has to be hosted on a site and then you paste the link to the picture inside the window that comes up when you click the photo icon in the reply box.

N Main from about north side drive down to the site of Panther Island Brewery is torn up. I'm glad to see it being repaired but when did this happen?

I guess so, I had no idea. Is the bridge supposed to span that far?

The road closure and detour is much farther than the bridge will be. They had to make it that way to have enough room to complete the detour onto commerce.

The bridge most likely be between 8th & 9th streets.

House passes 2018 Spending Bill.
Senate will want to negotiate certain parts before passing.
The House Bill Includes $1.16 billion MORE for the Corps of Engineers (Water Infrastructure) than Trump requested.

Army Corps of Engineers The Army Corps of Engineers is funded at $6.16 billion, an increase of $120 million above the fiscal year 2017 enacted level and $1.16 billion above the Presidents budget request. The bill focuses funding on activities that will have an immediate impact on public safety, job creation, and economic growth, including those that help increase the functionality of our ports and waterways. For example, the bill provides:

$2.8 billion for navigation projects and studies, including $1.34 billion in funding from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund and full use of estimated annual revenues from the Inland Waterways Trust Fund, to help advance American competitiveness and export ability; and

$1.8 billion to support public health and safety by funding flood and storm damage reduction activities, an increase of $74 million above fiscal year 2017 and $424 million above the budget request.

Does this mean that TRV is now, all but a reality?  If so, P.I. will be even more attractive to Amazon with infrastructure funding allocated.

I wonder if it is too late to change the design of those supports so they look more like an  "A" and less like a "V"?

I couldn't find anything online to back this up, but I believe TRVA, TRWD, the city, and the corps of engineers are public and Streams and Valleys is a private non-profit. I believe TRVA is a tax payer funded arm of TRWD in place to carry out the TRV project.

Rebranding a portion of Trinity River Vision from Uptown to Panther Island has been and will continue to be a stroke of genius.

 

Say Panther Island and the next question is what and where.  This can only mean more national attention and curiosity towards the City.

I thought Panther Island was a little forced and contrived, but it's better than Uptown and it has grown on me. It's unique and has some character to it.

 Panther Island has turned out to be a strategically potent brand name; whereas Uptown is being used almost everywhere to the point that, with exception of Manhattan, it does not identifies any specific city.  Last count, there are 23 Uptown neighborhoods/regions in 23 U.S. cities and 6 Uptown neighborhoods/regions in 6 Canadian cities. 

 

Yes, it is unique to Fort Worth and has enormous marketable potential.

Not to belabor the point, but when the Trinity Uptown name was coined, Uptown was also being used to describe the Samuels Ave. neighborhood.

I was driving southbound on N. Main Street today and I actually drove down the temporary roadway along N. Commerce Street and I noticed that all of the street signs in the area had been replaced with "Panther Island" street signs.  I did not take a picture because I was actually having to watch for traffic.  The temporary roadway is only two lane and there were cars in front and behind me.  The new street signs are purple with a panther on the left side and the street name following.

Yeah the street signs have been done for a while now. I posted about this earlier in the year.

The N main bridge does seem to moving decently quick though. Lot of dirt moved, and already some rebar in place for what I assume is the bridge landing.

Construction on three landmark bridges that are a part of the $910 million Panther Island flood control and economic development project downtown will be joined by a fourth bridge, but instead of federal dollars this one will be paid for by Fort Worth taxpayers and by using impact fees paid by developers.

I said it ten years ago when I ran for the Water District board. When it's all said and done, the cost will be over a billion dollars. The construction is proceeding at a snails pace. Why oh why do we have a former assistant D.A. in charge of a massive public works program? I'll save the rest of my comments for the politics subforum.

High costs notwithstanding, I totally approve of economic development for this area.  I'm sorry for the radiator business (as featured in the Channel 5 in Post #991) but I would rather see modern high-rise buildings, fabulous restaurants, and beautiful water-way scenery for this extension of downtown Fort Worth than those old mediocre-looking structures used by car repair shops, etc, that have populated the area.

Then, yes, the price is worth it.

In the early days the price tag was like 800 million something. I think most people knew it would go way past a billion in the end. But I for one still support this project.

Ours will have a minor league ballpark ready... it will more than compete with San Antonio.
