Tarrant County, TX

PROJECT PROFILE

Intersection Solutions

This hazardous intersection was transformed into a multi-lane roundabout, addressing safety concerns and minimizing costs while remaining within schedule and under budget.
The Opportunity

The intersection of Northside Drive and Cold Spring Road had significant safety concerns. JT conducted an Intersection Control Evaluation (ICE) that revealed the intersection was experiencing nine times the expected number of crashes. The ICE analysis recommended the installation of the roundabout to improve safety performance without compromising traffic operations.

The Outcome

JT took a proactive design approach that prioritized minimizing the roundabout’s footprint and its overall costs while still maintaining the safety benefits of a roundabout. Modifications to the design were made early on to avoid gas lines and impacts to the flood plain. Additionally, coordinating with stakeholders allowed adjustments to project staging and construction dates, reducing disruptions to local businesses. 

JT, with the aid of six local Fort Worth subconsultants, offered a comprehensive range of services that made this project successful. JT’s expertise in roundabout design kept the project on schedule and under budget.
