The East Rosedale Street Improvements project is two miles of a four-lane minor arterial thoroughfare extending from US 287 to Miller Avenue in the City of Fort Worth. It includes two multilane roundabout intersections and seven signalized intersections. The project scope project also includes an extension of the Sycamore Creek bridge, a new 12-inch include waterline, replacement of the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer line, and a new storm drainage system. The segment of the project adjacent to Texas Wesleyan University includes additional sustainable development funding for streetscape/landscape enhancements. Some of the critical design elements for the success of the project include extensive franchise utility coordination, analysis of alternative intersection control options at five existing un-warranted existing traffic signals, the design of five refurbished and one new traffic signals, the replacement of two existing signal-controlled intersections with roundabouts, traffic management, construction phasing, and coordination with the Fort Worth T for integration of the 10 existing bus stop locations with the proposed streetscape design. The East Rosedale project also included public involvement with three citizen advisory committee meetings and two public meetings to communicate the aesthetic elements of the project.
This project received the 2016 American Public Works Association, Texas Chapter Project of the Year award.
