In-person attendees will be able to view the same pre-recorded presentation delivered in the online public hearing which will be playing on a screen, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT and City of Fort Worth staff and/or consultants, and leave written comments. No formal presentation will be conducted. 

Purpose The City of Fort Worth and TxDOT are proposing to widen and improve Horne Street from Vickery Boulevard to Lovell Avenue in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas.

The Horne Street streetscape segment is in the Como neighborhood of Fort Worth, Texas, from Vickery Boulevard to Lovell Avenue. Proposed improvements include reconstructing the roadway to provide concrete pavement, expanding the current two-lane road to include a center turn lane, traffic signal improvements, sidewalks, bicycle lanes, on-street parking, and landscaping/pedestrian amenities. The proposed project would require 0.002 acres of new right-of-way, 0.265 acres of easements along the whole Horne Street corridor, and a pedestrian easement of approximately 0.002 acres from Como Park.

Although additional right-of-way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time. Information concerning services and benefits available to affected property owners and information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction can be obtained from the City of Fort Worth by calling 817-392-8022.

The proposed project would require a 0.002-acre pedestrian easement from unimproved parkland near the tennis court in Como Park, located on Horne Street. TxDOT anticipates making a de minimis determination for this use under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966. Public comment on the effects of the proposed project on the activities, features, or attributes of Como Park may be submitted as described below. Chapter 26 of the Parks and Wildlife Code also applies to this property.

Accessibility The in-person option will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public hearing or in-person option, please call 817- 392-8022 no later than 4 p.m. CT, June 24, 2024. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the City of Fort Worth and TxDOT to arrange.
