News you need to know

Update from the City of Fort Worth Transit Technical Advisory Team

The city of Fort Worth has hired Nelson/Nygaard to conduct a study to supplement the 2016 master plan. Over the past few months, the research team has been interviewing various stakeholder groups and conducting market analysis to determine where the population will be growing and where transit demand might be highest in our region.  The initial interviews with the stakeholders are clear - we need a more reliable service, with more effective routes.  We want to see innovative solutions to our transportation issues that go beyond the bus, and we want improved access to data and improved communications. 

It is the hope of the Tarrant Transit Alliance that the recommendations from this study will not only check these boxes but that our transit authority and city leaders will be able to work together to find the funding to make these a reality!

Two seasoned professionals join the City of Fort Worth Transportation & Public Works Department

Fort Worth’s Transportation & Public Works Department added two members to its leadership team. They join the staff in January.

Tanya Brooks will be assistant director overseeing the Traffic Management Division. In her new role, she will be responsible for maintaining and operating the city’s parking, signal, street lighting, pavement markings, and street signage programs, as well as the transportation and engineering planning sections.

Chad Edwards will be the mobility and innovation officer. He comes to Fort Worth with nearly 20 years of experience in transportation planning. Most recently, Edwards was assistant vice president of capital planning at Dallas Area Rapid Transit, where he had oversight of several areas, including corridor development, feasibility assessments, transit system planning, and travel demand modeling.



DFW transportation air quality plan gains federal approval

The U.S. Department of Transportation ruled that the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s recently-adopted Metropolitan Transportation Plan comply with federal air quality regulations, allowing current and future transportation projects to proceed.

Mobility 2045: The Metropolitan Transportation Plan for North Central Texas contains $136.4 billion in transportation improvements to be made over the next 20-plus years. The Regional Transportation Council (RTC) approved the plan in June 2018. The plan allocates $17.5 billion more expenditures than Mobility 2040, which the new plan replaces.

State Highway 199, LBJ East, I-20/I-820/U.S. Highway 287 (the Southeast Connector) and transit on the Cotton Belt rail corridor are a few examples of projects where development and implementation may continue, providing needed congestion relief and associated air quality benefits in the rapidly growing region. The Highway 380 corridor will also be studied to determine the best way to accommodate east-west travel in fast-growing Collin and Denton counties. 

Planned improvements include $33.3 billion for rail and bus.


Thank you to our Annual Sponsors!
