South Main Street Reconstruction
Rendering by Dunaway Associates
Scheduled for completion by the end of 2016, the South Main “complete street” project extends from Vickery Boulevard to Magnolia Avenue.
The 0.9-mile project will construct a new concrete roadway; wider sidewalks lined with trees and historic lampposts; a full upgrade of water, sewer, and stormwater utilities; protected parallel parking for adjacent businesses; dedicated lanes for people riding bicycles; and distinctive sidewalk sculptures by renowned artist Benito Huerta.
The new South Main will complement an exciting set of redevelopment projects already being built, with many more on the drawing board. The $8.6 million project is the result of work by community-minded businesses and property owners over the last decade to revitalize South Main.
The project is being implemented by Fort Worth South Inc., City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, the North Central Texas Council of Governments, Dunaway Associates and JLB Contracting.
