As part of the Capital Improvement Project, which aims to improve infrastructure + facilities across the city, the Fort Worth Transportation & Public Works Department will host a community meeting to discuss the planned changes to North Riverside Dr. — from Clary Ave. to Northeast 28th St.
Here’s everything you need to know before you go.
When + where
- Wed., Nov. 17 at 6 p.m.
- Riverside Community Center, 3700 E. Belknap St.
Why the change?
Residents have reported the following concerns:
- Increased speeding
- Street racing
- Reckless driving (as it relates to pedestrian safety)
- Walkability and bike safety
A study was done last summer to determine what changes are needed to improve driver and pedestrian safety. Here are a few of the recommendations:
- Reduce the number of lanes from 4 to 3
- Reduce lane width
- Reduce speed limit
- Create bike lanes
- Add a two-lane left turn lane
- Crash reduction of 19-47% (especially rear-end and left-turn crashes)
- More predictable path for emergency responders
- Increased distance between roadway + sidewalks due to bike lane
No advanced notice is required to attend or participate in the discussion.
