Purpose The Texas Department of Transportation Fort Worth District is proposing to reconstruct and widen RM 2871 from I-30 to US 377 in Tarrant County, Texas.

The proposed improvements to RM 2871 include reconstructing and widening the existing roadway to a four-lane divided urban roadway with a six-foot to 18-foot wide curbed median from US 377 in the City of Benbrook north to I-30 in the City of Fort Worth for approximately 5.08 miles along RM 2871.

Additional proposed improvements include:

  • An overpass bridge on RM 2871 over the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and Aledo Road
  • Realignment of Veale Road Parkway and Chaparral Pass
  • Left and right turn bays and intersection improvements throughout the corridor
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations on both sides of RM 2871. The proposed project would enhance safety and mobility

The project would require approximately 10.27 acres of additional right of way. The proposed project would, subject to final design considerations, require additional right of way and potentially displace one non-residential structure; no residential displacements are anticipated.

Accessibility The in-person public hearing 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 in-person public hearing option, please call (817) 370-3519 no later than 4 p.m. CT on December 4, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the Texas Department of Transportation to arrange.
