I-35W Corridor Design Standards — Fort Worth, Texas


The I-35W North Corridor Development Guidelines apply to an approximately 1,500-foot-wide corridor of I-35W from Meacham Boulevard to Highway 171. This 20-mile corridor includes many of Fort Worth's most prominent business parks and businesses, including Mercantile Center, Fossil Creek, BNSF Corporate Headquarters, Cabela's, Alliance Airport and Texas Motor Speedway.

The purpose of the I-35W Development Guidelines is to improve the aesthetic character and ensure the economic sustainability of development along the I-35W corridor by creating a framework for new development, focusing on gateways/entry points, signage, building orientation, parking, setbacks, storm water management, architecture, landscaping and lighting. Components of the guidelines will safeguard the natural qualities of the corridor and establish a design standard for landscape and architectural elements.
