NEWS Groundbreaking for Harrisburg METRORail overpass set for March 14

The Green (East End) METRORail Line will commemorate the beginning of construction for the new Harrisburg Overpass with a ground-breaking ceremony on Saturday, March 14 at 9 a.m. The observance will take place in the 6200 block of Harrisburg near the METRORail Service & Inspection Facility.

The program will include the groundbreaking with dignitaries and community leaders and light refreshments after the ceremony. The overpass design is the result of community input and combines the “History of the East End” and a “Garden Wall," incorporating white LED lighting with blue accents at the bridge columns to enhance the appearance of the lower side of the bridge.

METRO's Board of Directors voted on January 29 to move forward with the Harrisburg Overpass, awarding the contract to McCarthy Building Companies, Inc . The bridge will be built along the Green Line (East End), near the Gus Wortham Golf Course, allowing cars and trains to travel over the Union Pacific East Belt freight rail line running north-south, west of Hughes Street. The half-mile overpass will complete the Green Line which is scheduled to open this spring.
