The Bridgeport Economic Development Corporation (Bridgeport EDC) welcomes you to Bridgeport, Texas, where a bridge “port” was erected over the West Fork of the Trinity River by an area entrepreneur in the late 1800s. Located 35 miles northwest of Fort Worth at the convergence of US 380 and SH 114, Bridgeport is the place where your business will benefit from access to DFW International Airport, Alliance Airport, Bridgeport Municipal Airport, Union Pacific Railroad, I-35, US 287, skilled labor, workforce training resources, and a population of over 6 million people in the rapidly growing DFW Metro Area.
The Bridgeport EDC is the lead agency for coordinating economic assistance and incentive agreements for business entities seeking to expand and/or relocate operations to Bridgeport. The Bridgeport EDC administers the “4A” sales tax as a primary source of funding and aggressively encourages the entrepreneurial spirit while pursuing economic development using public-private partnerships. These partnerships allow the generation of numerous primary jobs using incentive packages that can include economic development grants, infrastructure participation, equipment purchases, relocation expenses, employee training, interest buy-downs, and others.
