Transportation & Public Works
Mobility and pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods are important to the residents of Fort Worth. The Transportation and Public Works Department (TPW) meets these challenges by maintaining:
- 7,000 lane miles of street surface
- 700 miles of sidewalks
- 500 miles of storm water channels
- 600 traffic signals
- 17,000 street lights
- 200 rail crossings
- 20,000 storm drains/inlets
As important are future roadways and current performance conditions of the roadway system. Staff routinely analyzes and recommends transit and roadway projects that will reduce congestion, improve air-quality and move traffic.
