First phase of East Rosedale street improvements to begin in 2013

Renovating and enhancing East Rosedale Street in front of Texas Wesleyan University are just the beginning.

The Rosedale Renaissance Project is a $6.5 million multifaceted project designed to leverage more than $32 million in private and public funding for the benefit of Southeast Fort Worth and Texas Wesleyan University.

The four main components of the project are East Rosedale Street improvements, United Methodist Church Central Texas Conference Service Center (to be located across from campus), a “front door” entryway to Texas Wesleyan, and a Business Incubator Center.

The $15.5 million first phase of the East Rosedale Street Improvements Project calls for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the stretch between U.S. 287 and Miller Avenue. A portion of that ($1.875 million) involves significant renovation and enhancements to four blocks adjacent to the University.

Construction will begin in spring 2013 and will include many major improvements: promenade-style sidewalks, extensive landscaping, street lights and benches, curb extensions, additional stoplights, and pedestrian crossing areas. Two new roundabouts – one at Rosedale and Mitchell and one at Rosedale and Ayers – will add aesthetic appeal and additional landscaping opportunities. At the Mitchell location, a public art installation will be at the center of the roundabout.
