Polytechnic/Texas Wesleyan University Streetscape Enhancement - City of Fort Worth

 

The Polytechnic/Texas Wesleyan University (TWU) Streetscape Enhancement project greatly improved infrastructure through context sensitive transportation improvements near TWU and Polytechnic High School. The project area has maintained its “Main Street feel” with a tightly spaced street grid and neighboring parks close by. The improvements include wider sidewalks at intersections to narrow pedestrian crossing distance, new street trees, pedestrian lights, and other street furnishing. An additional traffic signal was added at Wesleyan Street with pedestrian controlled crossing devices.

 

The redevelopment of one- and two-story masonry “Main Street style” buildings fronting Rosedale Street were renovated and reoccupied to complement the pedestrian-friendly improvements.

 

The infrastructure project was funded through the 2009-2010 Sustainable Development Call for Projects. NCTCOG funded $1.5 million with an additional $375,000 local match from the City of Fort Worth for street construction, pedestrian amenities, and landscaping to support the pedestrian improvement project.
