Drainage Improvements

Project Description Status
Eastern Hills Drainage Improvements This multi-phased project will address flooding in the Eastern Hills neighborhood in East Fort Worth. Phase 1: A channel and multi-use detention basin / practice field for regional detention of stormwater was constructed in 2013. Phase 2: Storm drain inlets were installed on Weiler Boulevard and Danciger Road. A spillway was constructed in an existing pond, and a channel was reconstructed downstream. This phase was completed during the Summer 2016. Phase 3: Design is underway to install storm drains and inlets on Monterrey Drive and a portion of Jacqueline Road. Phase 3 is a joint effort with the Water Department and includes water, wastewater and pavement replacement. Design

Parks, Recreation & Community Center Improvements

Project Description Status
Aradia Trail Connection This project includes design and construction of improvements to provide approximately one-tenth of a mile of paved ADA accessible trail and low water bridge connecting 8+ miles of the Fort Worth trail system with 15+ miles of the Watauga/Haltom City trail system. Design
East 1st Street Bridge This project includes design and construction of improvements to convert the existing 1936 narrow vehicular bridge to a pedestrian/bicycle-only trail bridge connecting the Gateway Park recreational trail to the Quanah Parker Park recreational trail. Design
Transportation Connections for Pedestrians and Bicycles to the Trinity River Trails This project has five-locations and will be constructed in two phases. Phase 1 will add bicycle and pedestrian connections along Oakland Boulevard from Randol Mill Road to Rosedale Street, Westcreek Drive from I-20 to Kellis Park and at the River Park Trailhead. The connections include paved trails, sidewalks with ADA ramps at intersections, on-street bike lanes with striping and signage, and expanded parking facilities. (Construction to start October 2015.) Phase 2 connection locations are from Quanah Parker Park to Handley-Ederville Road and on to Richland Hills TRE train station, and from the Forest Park Trinity River Trails to the Mistletoe Heights neighborhood via a pedestrian bridge. Connections at these two locations include paved trails, pedestrian bridges, a low-water crossing, retaining walls and on=street bike lanes with striping and signage. (Currently in final design stage.) Construction
Trinity Trails East Fort Worth Extension New trails and bridges from Quanah Parker Park to the City of Arlington trail system will be constructed. Phase 1 of the project will construct trails from Handley Ederville Road to River Trails Park. This phase is currently in construction and is expected to end November 2019. Phase 2 of the project has not started. As information becomes available, updates will be added. Construction

This phase of the project is currently in the planning phase. Design

Water System Improvements

Project Description Status
Big Fossil Creek Parallel Relief Sanitary Sewer Main M-402 Phase 2 This is the final phase of a three phase plan of a single parallel sanitary sewer pipeline. The scope of work includes design of 8,800 linear feet of sanitary sewer pipeline, design survey, multiple junction structures, two wholesale customer meter stations and easement preparation. This is located along Big Fossil Creek from South of State Highway 121 to Broadway Avenue. Design
Big Fossil Parallel Wastewater Line The existing wastewater main that serves Haltom City will be removed from service and wastewater will be diverted to the existing Big Fossil wastewater main. A new parallel main will also be constructed. Construction
Little Fossil Rehabilitation (Twin 90) Erosion Control Erosion control improvements along sewer collection lines in the Trinity River West Fork . Construction
North Tarrant Express Water & Wastewater Line Relocations Fourteen pipe crossings for water and wastewater lines on I-35W, from Loop 820 to I-30, that are in conflict with the additional roadway lanes for the North Tarrant Express project will be relocated. The project will be done in four segments: Segment 1: I-35W from Loop 820 to US 81/287 - Completed by March 2018 Segment 2: I-35W from Loop 820 to I-30 - Completed by December 2018 Segment 3: Loop 820 from Randol Mill Road to north of the interchange SH121/SH 183 - Completed by January 2023 Segment 4: I-35W from US 81/287 to Alliance Boulevard - TBD Construction
Randol Mill Road Wastewater Line Improvements This three-phase project replaces the major wastewater collection line from Woodhaven Drive to Village Creek Wastewater Reclamation Facility, and is part of a Sanitary Sewer Overflow Initiative agreement between the City of Fort Worth and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The first two phases are complete, and work is underway on the last phase. The final phase is from an area west of Mallard Cove Subdivision along the Trinity River to Woodhaven Drive near Randol Mill Road. The existing wastewater line will be relocated from within Riverbend Estates into the right-of-way along Randol Mill Road. After this is complete, the existing line will no longer be used. Wastewater line work within Riverbend Estates to connect the subdivision to the new section of the wastewater main is also part of the project. The existing 30-inch and 33-inch diameter line will be increased to a new 42-inch and 36-inch pipe. The final phase of the Randol Mill Road Wastewater Line Improvement project should be complete by June 30, 2018. Construction
Seminary Hill Elevated Storage Tank Repair and Repainting (Part 1) and Willow Springs Elevated Storage Tank Interior Coating Replacement (Part 2) The Seminary Hill 2 million gallon (2 MG) Elevated Storage Tank was built in 1947 and last rehabilitated in 1999. The Willow Springs Composite 2 MG Elevated Tank was built in 2010. Both tanks provide potable water storage and fire protection for areas in south and far northwest Fort Worth, respectively. The existing coating system for both tanks will be replaced in order to protect the structural steel from erosion. Construction
Upper Big Fossil Creek Wastewater Improvements The wastewater main that runs through Fossil Creek Golf Course from Western Center Boulevard to Beach Street will be rehabilitated. Design
