West 7th Street Bridge
The West 7th Street Bridge spans across the Trinity River on the western edge of Downtown Ft. Worth. Parallel precast arches stand vertically in a series of six equal spans that comprise the 980 ft length of the bridge, Two inch diameter stainless steel bars criss-cross between the precast arch members creating a beautiful web of tension members. The arches are stabilized by the bridge deck, composed of precast beams, decking and a topping slab. Cantilevered walks enhance the pedestrian experience by providing excellent views of the river, downtown and the museum district. In addition, people crossing the bridge are immediately adjacent to the substantial structure, an experience enhanced by the impeccable detailing of the stainless steel bars, handrail and arches.
