Blue Mound/Basswood Safety Improvements
We demand TXDOT, City of Fort Worth, and EMISD make immediate safety improvements on Blue Mound Rd from Western Center to Basswood Blvd. This includes street lights, road expansion, crosswalks and sidewalks.
After a recent tragic incident at this location, it is time for City of Fort Worth and TXDOT to move up their plans to improve this dangerous intersection.
Blue Mound expansion is not projected to start until the end of 2017. Due to the rapidly increasing growth rate, this projects timeline is unacceptable and a safety hazard for the citizens.
Kids are expected to walk in tall grass and low-lit areas on the sides of Blue Mound Rd from Saginaw HS and surrounding areas in order to walk to and from school. This is unacceptable and a serious hazard to all pedestrians and vehicles.
