Fort Worth's getting ready to take the staff-recommended projects for the city's May 2014 $293 million bond program out on a five-month road show, starting this Saturday, to hear what the public wants in the program.
Here's the overview of the staff-recommended projects for the bond program.
Here's how the $206 million for transportation in the staff recommendations breaks down for the bond program.
Here are the new arterials on the staff-rexcommended list for the bond program.
Here's a list of the staff-recommended neighborhood streets for the bond program.
Here's what the primary project "types" mean on that list.
Type 1: Insufficient infrastructure or apparent drainage concerns. Design and rebuild, with new sidewalks.
Type 2: Sufficient existing infrastructure. Either pulverize the existing road bed, or overlay with new asphalt and replacement of the curb, gutter and sidewalks.
Type 3: Base still viable, but asphalt needs replacing due to excessive cracks. Top two inches of the older asphalt is milled off and new asphalt is applied.
Type 5: Saw out and replace deteriorated concrete panels, equivalent to patching an asphalt street.
Type 7: Base still viable, but asphalt needs replacing due to excessive cracks. The top one inch of asphalt is super-heated; mix of oil and new asphalt applied.
Here's the meeting schedule. First one is 10 a.m.-noon Saturday at the Hazel Harvey Peace Center for Neighborhoods in Southeast Fort Worth's District 8.
