Houston, TX, June 30, 2017 – Webber, LLC, has been selected by the Texas Department of Transportation to construct the SH 114 Signature Bridge in Irving, TX. The project was bid at $39 million and will be led by Dallas Area Manager Jim Rogers and Senior Project Manager Rob Weber.
The signature bridge is composed of five bridges that merge together to appear as one structure. While it’s shown in three sections, there will be on and off “ramps” in-between the bridge for cars to gain access from SH 114. The top of the bridge will have two pedestrian areas covered by canopies which made out of aluminum with translucent fiberglass panels. The canopies will have sitting areas and planters for decorative vegetation. One large steel truss will hang above the bridge supported by pylons with cables connecting it to the canopies and to the top of the pylons.
Tim Creson, President & CEO of Webber, said:
“The SH 114 Signature Bridge in Dallas County is an exciting and innovative project that will challenge our team to build a new structure that will both inspire and improve the surrounding community.”
