In a public meeting March 23, city of Fort Worth officials identified a number of transportation projects that will be proposed for bond funding. The cost of the projects will come from Tarrant County 2021 bond and city of Fort Worth 2022 bond funds.

According to Lauren Prieur, city of Fort Worth assistant director, projects that have been identified in the north Fort Worth area include Heritage Trace Parkway, Park Vista Road, Keller Hicks Road, Ray White Road north and south, Avondale-Haslet Road and Intermodal Parkway. The city is also targeting the intersection of North Tarrant Parkway and North Beach street for capacity and safety improvements, Prieur said.

"We have 56 projects going into construction in the next 12 months," she said, noting that there are eight projects remaining from the city's 2018 bond.

Fort Worth officials have identified at least 39 additional projects for consideration at a cost of more than $400 million.

An estimated $204.5 million in funding for the proposed projects will come from the city's May 2022 bond program.
If approved by Tarrant County voters in November, the county could contribute up to 50% of funds as part of the county's 2021 transportation bond.
