Where: Calvary Christian Academy
1401 Oakhurst Scenic Drive
Fort Worth, TX 76111
 
When: Tuesday, June 12, 2012
6:30 p.m.
Purpose: A public hearing to discuss the proposed improvements to IH 35W from IH 30 to IH 820 in the City of Fort Worth, Texas. 
 
Description: The proposed improvements from Meacham Boulevard to SH 183 include:
  • A 12 lane facility with four 12-foot wide general purpose (non-toll) lanes in each direction with 10-foot wide inside and outside shoulders
  • Two 12-foot wide managed (toll) lanes in each direction with 10-foot wide outside and 4-foot wide inside shoulders
  • Frontage roads would be reconstructed or added from Meacham Boulevard to the Fort Worth Western Railroad (FWWR) with a U-turn connection between the southbound and northbound frontage roads north of the FWWR. Frontage roads would be reconstructed from 33rd Street to SH 183
  • Discontinuous frontage roads consist of one 12-foot wide inside lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared use lane for bicyclists with auxiliary lanes near ramp locations and cross streets
  • Six-foot wide sidewalks would be provided for pedestrians

The proposed improvements from SH 183 to SH 121 include:

  • A 12 lane facility with four 12-foot wide general purpose (non-toll) lanes in each direction with 10-foot wide inside and outside shoulders
  • Two 12-foot wide managed (toll) lanes in each direction with 10-foot wide outside and 4 foot wide inside shoulders are proposed. The managed lanes would have direct connections to Belknap-Weatherford extending from IH 35W to near Pecan Street
  • Continuous frontage roads would be constructed with one 12-foot wide inside lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared lane for bicyclists with auxiliary lanes near ramp locations and cross streets. One 12-foot wide inside lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared lane for bicyclists with auxiliary lanes near ramp locations and cross streets
  • Six-foot wide sidewalks would be provided for pedestrians

The proposed improvements from SH 121 to IH 30 include:

  • A 10 lane facility with four 12-foot wide general purpose (non-toll) lanes in each direction with 10-foot wide inside and outside shoulders
  • One 14-foot wide managed (toll) lane connection in each direction with 8-foot wide outside and 4 foot wide inside shoulders are proposed. The managed lanes would tie into the IH 35W general purpose (non-toll) lanes just north of IH 30 and have direct connections to US 287.
  • Frontage roads would be reconstructed with one 12-foot wide inside lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared lane for bicyclists with auxiliary lanes near ramp locations and cross streets. Six-foot wide sidewalks would be provided for pedestrians. Frontage roads would be continuous from SH 121 to East 4th Street on the west and from SH 121 to the Trinity Rail Express (TRE) bridge on the east.
  • Six-foot wide sidewalks would be provided for pedestrians

The proposed improvements to SH 121 from IH 35W to Riverside Drive include:

  • Reconstruction of the existing eight-lane facility with four 12-foot wide general purpose (non-toll) lanes in each direction and 10-foot wide inside and outside shoulders
  • Frontage roads would be continuous for the length of the improvement on SH 121 with one 12-foot wide inside lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared lane for bicyclists with auxiliary lanes near ramp locations and cross streets
  • Six-foot wide sidewalks would be provided for pedestrians.
  • Direct connectors would be provided to IH 35W north and south with local access to Belknap-Weatherford Streets. Westbound traffic on Belknap Street would continue to use the existing historic bridge over the West Fork Trinity River. A second bridge over the Trinity River would be constructed parallel to the existing bridge for eastbound traffic from Weatherford Street.

The proposed improvements along US 287 include:

  • Adding managed (toll) lane direct connectors consisting of one lane in each direction between the limits of IH 35W and IH 30. The direct connectors would provide access between US 287 and IH 35W
  • Existing US 287 pedestrian bridge would be replaced
  • Existing Cypress Street bridge would be reconstructed and widened to include a 14-foot wide trail and a 6 foot wide sidewalk. The trail would be extended to the adjacent Harmon Field Park and Butler Place Apartments.
  • Realignment of the existing Cypress Street ramp at US 287 northbound frontage road is proposed to create a T intersection at Cypress Street. The existing US 287 northbound two-way frontage road would also require realignment in order to avoid an overlap to of the existing the proposed US 287 northbound general purpose lanes.
