AARP Community Challenge 2017: Fort Worth, Texas

The AARP Community Challenge funds “quick-action” projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.

PROJECT: Improving driver and pedestrian safety on a residential roadway

The Linwood Park neighborhood in Fort Worth has long grappled with 30-foot-wide streets with poor lighting and no sidewalks or crosswalks. The city partnered with AARP Texas and the urban planning firm Team Better Block to install a temporary traffic circle, along with signage and improved lighting. Within three months of the installation, the city was moving forward with plans to make the well-rounded solution permanent.
