Fort Worth South, Inc. has received approval from the TIF #4 Board of Directors to pursue additional “complete street” re-striping projects this year. FWSI’s complete street program aims to create functional and inviting streets that meet the needs of all users while also supporting the district’s continued revitalization. FWSI has already worked closely with the City to transform streets such as W. Magnolia Ave., S. Main St., and Jennings, with W. Vickery also in the works, pending the City’s hiring of a new contractor. Next on the list: Evans and Broadway Avenues.
Over the last few years we’ve provided updates on FWSI’s efforts to improve the appearance and appeal of South Main St. between Magnolia and Vickery. The last year has focused on completing a detailed design concept, working with the City, South Main property and business owners, and design consultants from Dunaway and TownSite. New renderings depict the elements of the “complete street” design: wider sidewalks, on-street parking, roadside furnishings that include street trees and historic lampposts, sidewalk bulbouts at intersections, and dedicated bicycle lanes.
