Frustration builds over lack of I-20 off ramp


The city has spent money in the past to move the project forward but current city leaders don’t intend to do so again.

Though the new ramp would be outside the city’s extra-territorial jurisdiction, a prior council under a prior mayor funded engineering for the project for about $65,000, according to city officials.

“At this point, the city isn’t going to do anything more,” Mayor Richard Neverdousky told Farris.

Neverdousky explained that “it was someone’s thought that the Fort Worth ETJ might get converted to Willow Park ETJ. That never happened. The terms were never completed.”

The similar Mikus Road/Farm-to-Market Road 5 ramp reversal project recently completed on the other end of the city was funded by a private developer, the mayor told Farris.
