As part of the four year Downtown Street Resurfacing Program, the City of Fort Worth Transportation and Public Works Department is transforming the downtown streets through their PayGo program. PayGo contracts are planned to be issued at the beginning of each fiscal year through 2022. The 2019 contract was awarded to Advanced Paving for approximately $800,000 on September 11, 2018. Construction began on January 7 and is scheduled for completion by summer 2019.
Construction will be completed in two phases. In the first phase, concrete crews will repair damaged sidewalks, driveway aprons, curb and gutter, and install Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps at intersections. To date, 5,000 out of 10,000 square feet of sidewalks have been replaced, 30 out of 45 curb ramp installations have been completed, 1,800 out of 4,000 square feet of concrete driveways and 1,000 out of 2,000 linear feet of curb and gutter have been removed and replaced.
Overall, the contractor is approximately 50 percent complete with the concrete work and 18 percent
compete on 2019 Downtown Street Resurfacing project. The second phase of the project will include the removal and replacement of the top two inches of asphalt pavement and installing new pavement markings throughout the project area.
