Now that construction is complete and traffic is flowing over the three Panther Island bridges, Fort Worth residents are encouraged to help name them.

The bridges will span the future Trinity River bypass channel as part of the Fort Worth Central City Flood Control Project being designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Given the significance of the Central City project and bridges, Mayor Mattie Parker wants residents to help find the best name for each bridge.

“I am thrilled that we are taking advantage of the opportunity to give each of the brand new Trinity River bridges names that are meaningful to our community and allowing residents to lead the way on the decision,” Parker said. “Like every Fort Worth neighborhood, Panther Island is completely unique, and this process will let the creativity of Fort Worthians shine through and ensure we find names for each of the bridges that reflects that distinctiveness.”

View maps and submit your suggested name for each bridge. Proposed names should promote community pride and connectivity to the Trinity River while celebrating the culture and history of Fort Worth.

All submissions must be received by March 31. A committee will then select finalist names for each bridge. The committee will include representatives from the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Tarrant Regional Water District, Streams & Valleys and Visit Fort Worth.

The public will then vote on the finalists to select the names.
