Master Thoroughfare Plan (MTP)
The Master Thoroughfare Plan (MTP) and Street Development Standards were adopted by City Council on March 10, 2009, (M&C G-16496; Ord. No. 18509).
If you have questions or comments on the 2008 update of the MTP or the proposed Street Development Standards, contact Julia McCleeary at 817-392-2593.
The Master Thoroughfare Plan was developed based on the following criteria:
- The City of Fort Worth Comprehensive Plan
- Future traffic capacity needs
- Environmental issues (floodplain, drainage, topographic features, etc.)
- Safe utilization by pedestrians, bicyclists, buses, and truck traffic
- Existing and planned neighborhoods
- Existing roadways
- Construction feasibility
- Coordination with theNorth Central Texas Council of Government’s Regional Transportation Plan and with adjacent cities’ plans.
This plan identifies existing and future roadways for the City and its ETJ consistent with the above criteria. It is recognized that classifications and/or locations of arterials may change based on future conditions. A formal process is used for these changes. In areas, particularly in the ETJ, where the streets are not in place, the street alignments reflect corridors and not exact locations. Wherever possible, existing county roads are used as one side of divided roadways.
