Funds for this project are included in the 2018 Bond Program. Available resources within the General Fund will be used to provide interim financing until debt is issued. Once debt associated with the project is sold, bond proceeds will reimburse the General Fund in accordance with the statement expressing official Intent to Reimburse that was adopted as part of the ordinance canvassing the bond election (Ordinance No. 23209-05-2018).

Upon completion of this capital project, the anticipated annual operating impacts to the City of Fort Worth's budget are increased electricity costs for street lighting of approximately $1,227.44 and increased vegetation management of approximately $2,180.00.

Construction is anticipated to commence in October 2018 and be complete for final acceptance within 300 calendar days.
