Historical Note

The Bartholomew Plan was developed in 1927 by urban planner Harland Bartholomew, after being commissioned by the City of Fort Worth to devise a street plan for the city’s major traffic arteries. The report conducts a general survey of the city, reviews existing street structure, and presents a plan for an improved system.

The Bartholomew Plan consists of four parts. Part one is a general survey of the city, including population growth and distribution, land use, and a study of areas served by sewer and water. Part two examines the conditions of existing streets, highlighting areas that are well-designed, as well as areas that need improvement. Part three presents a new major street plan that takes principal traffic arteries into consideration. Part four discusses potential problems in carrying out the plan.
