The city continues to monitor traffic flow and parking in the West Seventh area, and adjustments are planned in the next few days. Some of the on-street diagonal parking on Bledsoe and Morton streets will be removed and the street operation will change from one-lane to two-lanes for continued traffic flow. Two lanes will enter each block and then taper to one-lane when approaching the intersections of University Drive and Foch Street.
Additional signage to assist motorists exiting parking garages and alleys is also being installed.
Parking meter installation will follow over the next few weeks and be complete by the end of August 2018.
Morton, Bledsoe, Norwood and Foch streets in the West Seventh Street core were converted to one-way streets July 16. The traffic change was necessary to help with crowd control, improve access for emergency vehicles and reduce vehicle-pedestrian conflicts.
More changes are planned for the area in upcoming months that will go a long way toward improving the safety, walkability and accessibility of the thriving West Seventh neighborhood, one of Fort Worth’s fastest growing areas.
