The Fort Worth City Council recently approved funds to address vandalism and water intrusion causing lighting issues on the iconic West 7th bridge.
Why it matters: The bridge has passed the warranty period after being constructed a decade ago and the City then adopted the bridge, assuming responsibility for maintaining the lights.
Go deeper: The project includes a specialized engineering inspection of needed repairs, safety lighting design plans and a long-term maintenance plan. The new lighting system will include marine-grade specifications, ensuring waterproofing and durability against condensation and varying weather conditions.
