State Highway 183 Corridor Master Plan, Phase II - Trinity River to IH 30 (2018)  (Click to expand)

.Project Description: This plan builds upon the Phase I corridor master plan for SH 183 in the City of River Oaks, from SH 199 to the Trinity River. Together, the plans will be used as a basis for the future design and reconstruction of the SH 183 corridor from SH 199 to IH 30 in northwest Tarrant County. Both plans use context sensitive design principles to recommend improvements that fit the context of the area along the corridor, improve transportation for people walking, bicycling, and driving, enhance access to the Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base, and realize the community’s future vision for the corridor.

State Highway 183 Corridor Master Plan, Phase I - River Oaks Boulevard (2016)  (Click to expand)

Project Description: The City of River Oaks participated in a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funded sub-regional planning study referred to as the Planning Livable Military Communities (PLMC), which was completed in spring 2014.  This effort consisted of a series of planning studies that identified strategies related to transportation, housing, land use, and economic development to enhance livability in several communities surrounding the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth.  Through the PLMC effort, River Oaks Boulevard (SH 183) in the City of River Oaks was identified as a vital regional transportation facility that primarily serves as an access corridor for commercial development and nearby major employers.  Significant opportunities exist to evaluate the addition of multimodal capacity while also promoting economic development along the corridor.  Visionary concepts to balance mobility and accessibility improvements with economic development were developed for the corridor during a week-long PLMC visioning charrette.  The next step following the PLMC study is to develop a corridor master plan for SH 183 in River Oaks.  This corridor master plan is anticipated to be the basis for preliminary design and engineering and will be the first step in a phased approach to making improvements to the corridor.  The corridor master plan aims to address the feasibility of the following strategies:

  • Develop the built environment to support multimodal transportation options (bicycle, pedestrian, transit, and automobile)
  • Encourage economic development along State Highway 183
  • Support mixed-use development and modern urban design
  • Improve access
  • Incorporate context sensitive design principle

Preston Road and Northwest Highway Area Plan  (Click to expand)

Project Description: The purpose of this study is to develop a Preston Center and Northwest Highway Area Plan that will examine existing conditions and future needs and improvements within the area.  The approach will be an integration of the following: transportation operational improvements, land use intensity and mix, and context sensitive design. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is partnering with the City of Dallas on this effort.  Kimley-Horn is the primary consultant performing work.

An Advisory Task Force (ATF) has been formed from representatives of various neighborhoods interested within the study area.  The ATF will provide input to the project scope of work, help coordinate and guide consultant tasks, and review deliverables.  Please feel free to contact your zone representative for additional information.

State Highway 199 (Jacksboro Highway, IH 820 to Belknap St.) Corridor Master Plan  (Click to expand)       

Project Description:  The SH 199 Corridor was identified as a vital regional transportation facility in Planning for Livable Military Communities, the 2008 Joint Land-Use Study, with visionary concepts to balance mobility and accessibility improvements with economic development.

As a next step, a corridor master plan study for SH 199 is being developed to advance these visions into a design. The corridor master plan will use context sensitive solution principles and modern engineering concepts to recommend phased improvements to increase the livability in the corridor, provide transportation options for different users, and improve drainage. The corridor master plan will study many elements such as landscaping and streetscaping, intersection improvements, water runoff and drainage, economic market analysis, parking, bicycle and pedestrian improvements, public transportation, and roadway widening.

Project Description:  The SH 199 Corridor was identified as a vital regional transportation facility in Planning for Livable Military Communities, the 2008 Joint Land-Use Study, with visionary concepts to balance mobility and accessibility improvements with economic development.

 

To help make these visions a reality, a corridor master plan study for SH 199 was initiated to produce a planning document that could be used as a basis for future design and construction.   The study was conducted from February 2016 to September 2017.  The corridor master plan used context sensitive solution principles and modern engineering concepts to recommend improvements to increase the livability in the corridor, provide transportation options for different users, and improve drainage.  The corridor master plan includes many elements such as  urban design, intersection improvements, water runoff and drainage, economic market analysis,  bicycle and pedestrian improvements, public transportation, and roadway widening.
