Execution of these Local Project Advance Funding Agreements (Funding Agreements) in the amount described above allows for federal, state, regional, and local funding participation to construct these new bridges on Henderson Street, North Main Street and White Settlement Road which will each span the future Trinity River by-pass Channel associated with the Trinity River Vision Central City Project.  Funding includes $33,014,573.00 in federal funds, $8,197,131.00 in state funds, $7,500,000.00 in Regional Toll Revenue funds and $24,997,613.00 in local funds for a total amount of $73,709,317.00.

Funding for the local portion of construction will come from a combination of City and Tarrant Regional Water District (Water District) funds. The City's portion of $6,631,831.00 in construction funds came from the 2008 Bond Program and was previously paid to TxDOT per M&C C-25776 (August 7, 2012) authorizing the Funding Agreement for the Henderson Street Bridge.  As a result, the remaining balance of the local construction funds ($18,365,782.00) will come from the Water District.  Per M&C C-26394 approved by the City Council on August 13, 2013, the City contracted the final remaining portion of its Trinity River Vision commitment of $26.6 million for design and construction activities using City of Fort Worth funds.
