Overhead Look At Year's Progress Building Fort Worth Bridges Over Dry Land

Since we are now in the month of April of the year 2017 we are in the second year of the Trinity River Central City Uptown Panther Island District Vision's stalled construction of three simple little bridges currently not being built over dry land to connect the Fort Worth mainland to an imaginary island.

Know one knows, or is confessing to knowing, the real reason why the construction of these vitally needed bridges has been stalled for over a year.

These bridges are key to a direly needed flood control and economic development scheme which has been scheming along for most of this century, with little to show for the effort, even though,  you know, it is vitally needed, to protect downtown Fort Worth from a flooding Trinity River, where no flooding has happened for well over a half century due to flood control levees successfully keeping the river in its place.

A couple days ago I blogged about America's Biggest Boondoggle's bridges. Someone named Anonymous then made an anonymous comment which led me to the two images you see here.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Again Hoping To See Fort Worth Boondoggle's Bridge Under Construction":

These two images were taken a year apart.

The link in the Anonymous post went to a post in a forum devoted to the Trinity River Vision on a Fort Worth architecture website devoted to all the amazing architectural wonders in Fort Worth.

The Anonymous pair of images show the amount of progress made in a year of the Boondoggle boondoggling along. I think the second image is the more recent one due to the construction site looking, maybe, as if some progress has occurred....

People are always asking when this project is going to start. Well, we’ve started after years and years of planning. We’ve been pregnant for a long time, now we are showing.
