The City of Fort Worth in partnership with TxDOT, NCTCOG, and Trinity Metro is seeking consultant services to develop a comprehensive multimodal implementation plan to further develop projects for State Highway 180 – East Lancaster Avenue from Jones Street to Dottie Lynn Parkway. The purpose of this planning effort is to:

  • Build-off the land use recommendations from Advancing East Lancaster Phase One
  • Develop alternatives for land use and transportation that will lead to:
    • Preferred alternative for a multimodal roadway cross section (including technology) on East Lancaster, along with Brentwood Stair Road and Bridge Street (from Oakland to Bridgewood)
    • Preferred alternative for high-capacity transit routing and mode(s) between Downtown, Handley, the Eastchase/IH 30 shopping area
    • Safety, operational, and aesthetic improvements for parallel, adjacent, and connecting corridors to identified nodes
    • Improved connectivity across the two railroads and freeways within the study area
  • Develop a form-based code and regulating plan for the East Lancaster area and other key nodes and corridors
  • Serve as a coordinating document for federal processes on identified roadway and transit components to move into the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, design, and construction along East Lancaster Avenue
  • Include an action plan for East Lancaster Ave to enter the TxDOT turn-back program for local ownership of the facility (if feasible)
