Construction of TxDot’s replacement of the FM 2611 Churchill Bridge (Sportsman's Span) is well underway and stands just downriver from the older narrower bridge built in 1957. The elevated red portion of the new construction is seen to the right of the older bridge. It will hold the proposed two 12 ft wide traffic lanes and the two 10 ft wide shoulders. Cost is set at $12.141 million. You will be able to cross this bridge without holding your breath a year from now when construction is complete.
