Fort Worth is looking for a way to stand out, and an almost half-million dollar art project could be the solution.
"[It's] a public art project that also functions as a 'welcome to Fort Worth' gateway monument," explained Fort Worth public art manager Anne Allen.
Some are calling it the "Hollywood Sign" of the Lone Star State.
The latest news from around North Texas.
"There will be a steel letters that spell out 'Fort Worth,' and those will line up at a certain point when you are driving by," Allen said.
The monument was planned for Interstate 30, but a few roadblocks caused the construction to be moved to Highway 121 between Beach and Maxine streets.
"Everyone coming into Fort Worth from D/FW Airport will drive by this monument," Allen said. "I've seen the highway statistics, and there's currently more traffic along that Highway 121 corridor."
About $265,000 of the project is covered in a grant, and the rest comes from Fort Worth's public art budget.
"The total project budget would be about $470,000," Allen said.
