Another City's Plan to Expand a River and Create Islands

Fort Worth, Texas is currently making waterfront plans similar to those introduced for Nashville last night. Trinity Uptown is an effort to expand the Trinity River and increase flood protection, urban revitalization, environmental improvements, and recreation (which were the same themes in the Design Team's Cumberland River Redevelopment Plan). Canals, islands, and an "urban lake" characterize the development. Their project costs $435 million and is funded as a partnership between the federal government (Congress authorized $110 million) and a number of local sponsors.
