Officials say that an expanded four-lane Golden Triangle Boulevard in North Fort Worth is scheduled to open Thursday and Friday, following more than two years of construction and years of planning. And all I can say is, finally!
The old rural two-lane road stretching from I-35W to U.S. 377 has been a total disaster for as long as I remember. As a matter of fact, I’m almost positive I received some degree of brain damage traveling down that jarring road as a child. And it’s only gotten worse and more congested since then, especially with
multiple businesses opening up, and, more recently, a large hospital intended to serve most of the North Fort Worth area. Due to all of this big development, I’m kind of surprised that this road hasn’t received any improvements since what were essentially the medieval times. But late is better than never!
Surprisingly, it looks like future growth is also being accounted for here–apparently, the wide median can be converted into another two lanes if needed. This main east-west North Fort Worth arterial joins Heritage Trace Parkway and North Tarrant Parkway, two roads which both have experienced immense growth over recent years, presumably because of the opening of the Alliance Town Center.
