Improving Safety on a Residential Roadway

Watch a video about this winning project from a 2017 AARP Community Challenge grantee

LOCATION: Fort Worth, Texas
GRANTEE: Linwood Neighborhood Association

The Linwood Park neighborhood in Fort Worth has long grappled with 30-foot-wide streets with poor lighting and no sidewalks or crosswalks. The city partnered with AARP Texas and the urban planning firm Team Better Block to install a temporary traffic circle, along with signage and improved lighting. Within three months of the installation, the city was moving forward with plans to make the well-rounded solution permanent.

The AARP Community Challenge funds “quick-action” projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
