The proposed project stretches across 5-plus miles in Fort Worth and Benbrook.

UPDATE: This meeting has been canceled by TxDOT.


The Texas Department of Transportation is proposing improvements to RM 2871 (Longview Avenue/Chapin School Road) from I-30 to U.S. 377. The purpose of the meeting is to offer an opportunity to discuss and make comments on the proposed improvements.

The meeting will be 6-8 p.m. March 19 at HighRidge Church, 10100 Rolling Hills Drive. The public meeting will be an open-house format with no formal presentation. Maps and exhibits of the proposed improvements will be displayed.

Written comments must be submitted on or before April 3 to be part of the official record.

The proposed improvements to RM 2871 include reconstructing and widening the existing roadway to a four-lane divided urban roadway with a raised-curb median from U.S. 377 in the City of Benbrook north to I-30 in the City of Fort Worth for approximately 5.12 miles along RM 2871. Additional improvements being evaluated include an overpass bridge of RM 2871 over the Union Pacific Railroad and Aledo Road.

The project would also include additional left- and right-turn bays, improvements to existing intersections and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations on both sides of RM 2871.

The project alternatives would require between one and 16 acres of additional right-of-way, depending on the selected alternative.
