Freese and Nichols Helps Five Projects Receive NCTCOG TAP Funding

Alex Garcia

Earlier this year, Freese and Nichols assisted five clients in the preparation of funding applications for the North Central Texas Council of Governments’ Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). We are pleased to announce that each of them will be receiving funding as part of this program. The total funding awarded for these five projects accounts for more than $6 million, including nearly half of all the funds available in the Fort Worth District for this program. The purpose of the program is to provide funding to promote transportation projects which cater to bicycle and pedestrian travelers.

Freese and Nichols assisted the following clients in applying for the funds:

  • City of Fort Worth’s White Settlement Road project (part of the Trinity River Vision); awarded $3 million
  • City of Westworth Village’s City Trails Improvements; awarded $1.68 million with a 20 percent local match, for a total of $2.1 million
  • City of Weatherford’s Town Creek Trail Phase II; awarded $1.15 million with a 20 percent local match, for a total of $1.44 million (our team’s effort included planning and cost estimates only)
  • City of Princeton’s Safe Routes to Schools project; awarded $440,000 with a $110,000 local match, for a total of $550,000
  • City of Aledo’s Pedestrian Improvements along FM 5 to McAnally Intermediate School; awarded $325,000, including $65,000 in transportation development credits

It is anticipated that TxDOT will be issuing a similar statewide call for projects in the next few months. Stay tuned and we will post that information when it becomes available.
