After 15 years of planning, the East Rosedale Street Project is set to break ground March 2013.

Spearheaded by architectural firm Freese and Nichols, Inc.,  the renovation will include the building of two roundabout driveways located at Miller and Ayers Avenue, more than 250 new trees, 130 new street lights, 65 pedestrian lights, and enhanced paving at seven key intersections, parallel parking, and public art spaces.

The renovation is divided into two phases. Phase one consists of renovations from US 287 to Miller Avenue and has a total budget of $15.5 million. Funding for phase one is provided by the City of Fort Worth and Tarrant County.  Funding for the sustainability portion of phase one is funded by a grant from North Central Texas Council of Governments and Texas Wesleyan.

Phase two consists of renovations from Miller Avenue to IH-820. The Texas Department of Transportation will provide the $16.1 million budget for phase two.  All renovations are expected to be completed by November 2014.

The renovations also include a sustainability portion that will be constructed directly in front of Texas Wesleyan. The new enhancements collaborate with Texas Wesleyan’s new master plan.
