Rosedale Bridges Reopen at I-30

There is good news for commuters who drive along Interstate 30 on the southwestern edge of downtown Fort Worth. The North Texas Tollway Authority opened the Rosedale Street bridges that connect to I-30 on Wednesday.

The reconstruction of the bridges allows for the future Chisholm Trail Parkway to be constructed beneath the Rosedale Street bridges.

The Chisholm Trail Parkway is a 27-mile toll road that will run from downtown Fort Worth to U.S. 67 in Cleburne.  The parkway is tentatively scheduled to open in early 2014 and costs an estimated $1.4 billion.

Along I-30, between the Forest Park and University exits, state Highway 121 splits from the interstate and moves southwest before crossing the Union Pacific railroad yard and plunging south toward Cleburne.

The parkway is being built by the NTTA; the Texas Department of Transportation; the cities of Fort Worth, Cleburne and Burleson; Tarrant and Johnson counties; Union Pacific Railroad; Fort Worth and Western Railroad; and the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
