NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING: Southeast Connector – Reconstruct 1-20/1-820/US 287 Interchanges

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing to reconstruct the 1-20, 1-820 and US 287 interchanges in southeast Tarrant County. The limits of proposed improvements include 1-20 from Forest Hill Drive to Park Springs Boulevard, 1-820 from 1-20 to Brentwood Stair Road and US 287 from Bishop Street to Sublett Road. Total length is approximately 16 miles. The proposed project is also referred to as the “Southeast Connector.” The purpose of the meeting is to present the recommended improvements and to receive public comments on the proposed project. The Public Meeting will be an open house format, with no formal presentation, held on:

Thursday, July 19, 2018
6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Dunbar High School (Cafeteria)
5700 Ramey Avenue
Fort Worth, Texas 76112

Along 1-20 between 1-820 and US 287, the alternative analyses recommend reconstructing existing interchanges and adding general purpose lanes and collector-distributor road systems to separate traffic movements and eliminate weaving. Along 1-820 from 1-20 to US 287, 1-820 and US 287 run concurrently; the analyses recommend widening and reconstruction of the general purpose lanes to align travel lanes and reduce major weaving movements.
Throughout the project study limits, TxDOT is evaluating and recommending improvements promoting safety including reconstructing interchanges, widening or reconstructing general purpose lanes, modifying ramp locations to minimize weaving movements and eliminate left-hand exit ramps, reconstructing or providing additional frontage roads to incorporate shared use lanes that would accommodate vehicles and bicycles and adding sidewalks to accommodate pedestrians.

Maps and drawings reflecting the recommended alternative for operational improvements and other alternatives evaluated will be displayed at the Public Meeting. Information about the proposed project will also be available for public inspection at the TxDOT District Office, 2501 SW Loop 820, Fort Worth, TX 76133.

All interested persons are invited to attend this Public Meeting. Persons interested in attending the Public Meeting who have special communication and/or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact Tanya Fitzgerald at (817) 370-6610 at least five (5) work days prior to the Public Meeting. Requests for language interpreters or other special communication needs should also be made at least five (5) work days prior to the Public Meeting. TxDOT will make every reasonable effort to accommodate these needs.

Verbal and written comments relative to the alternatives may be presented at the meeting. Written comments may also be submitted on or before Friday, August 3, 2018, to Texas Department of Transportation, Attention: Curtis Loftis, P.E., Project Manager, 2501 SW Loop 820, Fort Worth, Texas 76133, to be included in the Public Meeting record.

SH360 South Project – July 2017 Update

The Roads Ahead

Oct 16, 16 • In the Press, ProgressNo Comments

AS THE CLICHÉ GOES, everything is bigger in Texas—and that includes the infrastructure. The Lone Star State has over 50,000 bridges and 300,000 miles of roads, more than any state in the nation. But it all comes at a price: The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) estimates that replacing the state’s aging travel networks will cost $500-750 billion. Effective—and cost-effective—solutions are in high demand, and a trio of UT Arlington engineers is answering the call. The professors are offering innovative ways to help maintain the roads and bridges we have today and build better ones for tomorrow.
