Fort Worth dedicates a new sculpture at Las Vegas Trail roundabout

The “Right Turn Only” sculpture consists of upward-facing arrows in a swirl that mirrors traffic around the roundabout + the air patterns created by airplane wings.

Motorists navigating the Las Vegas Trail roundabout will have no trouble remembering which way to go around.

City officials dedicated a new sculpture titled “Right Turn Only” on June 1, depicting a swirl of arrows rising from the ground to mirror the flow of traffic.

The 20-foot-tall artwork is the result of artist Mark Reigelman’s research + conversations with community members, who expressed interest in a hopeful piece that acknowledged the area’s ties with aeronautical history.

According to Fort Worth Public Art, the resulting spiral “references the circular air patterns created by airplane wingtips.”
