and enhancing East Rosedale Street in front of Texas Wesleyan University are
just the beginning.
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.
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
$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. (See page 11 to read more about the artist.)
