FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - For two long years, bridge construction bottlenecked the busy Hulen Street in Fort Worth to just one lane in both directions, frustrating shoppers and residents in the area. But finally, the full flow of traffic is moving once again.

The second lane on the southbound side opened back up on Wednesday morning. A third lane will open this summer to expand the street when the two-year project is completed. The northbound side opened to two lanes last fall, and opened a third lane on Wednesday.

This is one of the taller bridges in Fort Worth, crossing over the Union Pacific rail yard and the new Chisholm Trail Parkway. As construction closed lanes, traffic backups along Hulen Street have become a way of life, especially during the evening hours. The lines to cross the bridge started back at Central Market, more than a mile away.

The new bridge was needed so that the new Chisholm Trail Parkway could fit underneath. That 27-mile tollway from Fort Worth to Cleburne opens in 2014. And another long-awaited bridge opens next month at the foot of the Hulen Street bridge. The Clear Fork Bridge will link Hulen Street with Southwest Boulevard. It also allows gives the neighborhood access to the Trinity Trail System.
