Street and transportation projects moving forward

Posted Sept. 21, 2017

Fort Worth’s population growth and economic development increase demands on city services and infrastructure. This growth creates streets and transportation challenges: roads need to be expanded and repaired, and more sidewalks, traffic signals and street lights are needed.

That’s why voters approved $219,740,000 in the 2014 Bond Program Proposition 1 to address some of these infrastructure improvements.

With more than 18 arterial and 215 neighborhood streets projects, progress continues so 2014 bond funds are encumbered and spent within five years. As of Aug. 20, 2017, projects have encumbered and spent $100 million, with $49 million in projects bid and ready to bid. That leaves $55 million, or 27 percent of the funds, remaining to spend.

See the details of all 2014 street and transportation funding.
