In Topic: East Loop 820 and Hwy 121 Expansion

What about the only two lanes in each direction from 20 to just south of 30  :-\


That section of 820 (most of it) is part of a separate project called the Southeast Connector. There are details in the powerpoint on this page.

In Topic: Fort Worth Nite Life

The "sides" of Fort Worth are in the eye of the beholder. You can go due south from Hemphill and Berry for nine miles and still be within Fort Worth city limits. Some people consider far south FW to be in the vicinity of Hemphill and 1187.

In the same way, some people consider far north FW to be anything north of the Stockyards, while others think that label only refers to the parts of the city north of 35 and 170.
