State Highway 183 (Trinity River to I-30) Corridor Master Plan  (Click to expand)

Project Description: The Cities of Westworth Village, White Settlement, and Fort Worth participated in Planning for Livable Military Communities (PLMC), a Department of Housing and Urban Development-funded sub-regional planning study, completed in the spring of 2014. This effort consisted of a series of planning studies that identified transportation, housing, land use, and economic development strategies, to enhance livability in communities surrounding the Naval Air Station Fort Worth, Joint Reserve Base. Through the PLMC effort, the SH 183 corridor was identified as a critical mobility linkage.

The next step was to develop corridor master plans for the SH 183 corridor. A corridor master plan was developed in 2016 for SH 183 (River Oaks Boulevard) in the City of River Oaks from the Trinity River on the south to SH 199 on the north. The current corridor master plan effort is focused on SH 183 between the Trinity River on the north and I-30 on the south. This master plan will form the basis for preliminary corridor design, and will be the first step towards implementation and making improvements within this portion of the SH 183 corridor. The overall focus of the study is to evaluate bicycle/pedestrian options, determine desired streetscape amenities, and conduct a safety and access management review.

Preston Road and Northwest Highway Area Plan  (Click to expand)

Project Description: The purpose of this study is to develop a Preston Center and Northwest Highway Area Plan that will examine existing conditions and future needs and improvements within the area.  The approach will be an integration of the following: transportation operational improvements, land use intensity and mix, and context sensitive design. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is partnering with the City of Dallas on this effort.  Kimley-Horn is the primary consultant performing work.

 

An Advisory Task Force (ATF) has been formed from representatives of various neighborhoods interested within the study area.  The ATF will provide input to the project scope of work, help coordinate and guide consultant tasks, and review deliverables.  Please feel free to contact your zone representative for additional information.

Northwest Highway and Preston Road Area Plan Final Report



State Highway 183 (River Oaks Boulevard) Corridor Master Plan  (Click to expand)

Project Description: The City of River Oaks participated in a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funded sub-regional planning study referred to as the Planning Livable Military Communities (PLMC), which was completed in spring 2014.  This effort consisted of a series of planning studies that identified strategies related to transportation, housing, land use, and economic development to enhance livability in several communities surrounding the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth.  Through the PLMC effort, River Oaks Boulevard (SH 183) in the City of River Oaks was identified as a vital regional transportation facility that primarily serves as an access corridor for commercial development and nearby major employers.  Significant opportunities exist to evaluate the addition of multimodal capacity while also promoting economic development along the corridor.  Visionary concepts to balance mobility and accessibility improvements with economic development were developed for the corridor during a week-long PLMC visioning charrette.  The next step following the PLMC study is to develop a corridor master plan for SH 183 in River Oaks.  This corridor master plan is anticipated to be the basis for preliminary design and engineering and will be the first step in a phased approach to making improvements to the corridor.  The corridor master plan aims to address the feasibility of the following strategies:

  • Develop the built environment to support multimodal transportation options (bicycle, pedestrian, transit, and automobile)
  • Encourage economic development along State Highway 183
  • Support mixed-use development and modern urban design
  • Improve access
  • Incorporate context sensitive design principle

State Highway 199 (Jacksboro Highway, IH 820 to Belknap St) Corridor Master Plan  (Click to Expand)       

Project Description:  The SH 199 Corridor was identified as a vital regional transportation facility in Planning for Livable Military Communities, the 2008 Joint Land-Use Study, with visionary concepts to balance mobility and accessibility improvements with economic development.

As a next step, a corridor master plan study for SH 199 is being developed to advance these visions into a design. The corridor master plan will use context sensitive solution principles and modern engineering concepts to recommend phased improvements to increase the livability in the corridor, provide transportation options for different users, and improve drainage. The corridor master plan will study many elements such as landscaping and streetscaping, intersection improvements, water runoff and drainage, economic market analysis, parking, bicycle and pedestrian improvements, public transportation, and roadway widening.
