Fort Worth: $8.7 million grant to repair area bridges
The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) will receive a $8,775,000 federal grant to rehabilitate seven bridges in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn announced. Two of the bridge projects are in Fort Worth.
The funding comes through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Infrastructure For Rebuilding America grant program.
“With more people coming to North Texas each day, we must ensure our infrastructure can meet increasing demands,” Cornyn said. “Thanks to this grant, bridges in the Metroplex will be safer and support future regional growth.”
NCTCOG will receive the grant by September 2021 or earlier.
The bridge projects include:
- U.S. 287 southbound over Lancaster Avenue (Tarrant County).
- U.S. 287 northbound over Carey Street (Tarrant County).
- Loop 12 northbound over I-35E southbound (Dallas County).
- I-35W northbound over I-35W southbound Alvarado exit (Johnson County).
- U.S. 80 eastbound over the East Fork Trinity River (Kaufman County).
- FM 460 over U.S. 80 (Kaufman County).
- U.S. 180 over Dry Creek (Parker County).
