Transportation & Public Works

Mobility and pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods are important to the residents of Fort Worth. The Transportation and Public Works Department (TPW) meets these challenges by maintaining:

  • 7518 lane miles of street surface
  • 2551 miles of sidewalks
  • 300 miles of engineered drainage channels
  • 883 traffic signals
  • 66,000 street lights
  • 206 rail crossings 
  • 30,000 storm drains/inlets

As important are future roadways and current performance conditions of the roadway system. Staff routinely analyzes and recommends transit and roadway projects that will reduce congestion, improve air-quality and move traffic.
