Street & Transportation Improvements

This project proposes the addition of a median to improve safety, and will improve pedestrian and bicycle access and transit facilities. A new traffic signal will be constructed at Collinsworth Street and the existing signal at Old University Drive will be replaced. University Drive pavement will be resurfaced. Updating the striping of Old University will provide for bike lanes and a parking lane. 

This project is in Council Districts 3 and 9

Project Update - July 2023

  • Construction started February 13.
  • Outside lanes of University Drive will be closed starting May 30 between Riverfront Drive and Old University Drive to continue improvements to sidewalks and pedestrian ramps, lighting, and traffic signals.
  • All six lanes will remain open during special events (Fort Worth Zoo Spring Break, Fort Worth Zoo Run, Mayfest, Colonial Golf Tournament, TCU Home Football Games, Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo).
  • During normal construction operations, it is anticipated that one lane in each direction will be closed. Traffic delays should be expected.
  • All work is expected to take place within the city right of way. No work is expected to occur on private property. The contractor will coordinate with affected businesses and homeowners during construction in an effort to minimize impact.
