If you closed your eyes, you just might imagine you are in the Forum in Rome. NOT!! These pillars from road construction may stand as a testament to our 'civilization' 2000 years from now, or more likely they will crumble long before that. They are part of the construction of the Chisholm Trail Parkway construction in Fort Worth. The Chisholm Trail Parkway (formerly Southwest Parkway) is a proposed 27.6-mile tollroad that will extend from downtown Fort Worth south to Cleburne. More than 40 years in the making, the project is a collaboration between the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA), Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG),Tarrant and Johnson counties, the cities of Fort Worth, Burleson and Cleburne,Fort Worth and Western Railroad (FWWR) and Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR). While they say it was 40 years in the making, you may read into that that there was 35 years of political arguing, and 5 years of actual progress.
