Has anyone noticed there has been no sand dumped on the busy streets of North Fort Worth like Basswood, North Tarrant Parkway, Heritage Trace, Golden Triangle, Western Center.

But supposedly:
"Highway crews still have plenty of de-icing material on hand, thanks to an extra large stockpile for Super Bowl week."

So there is plenty of sand for super bowl travelers, but no sand to use on the busy streets traveled by the City of Fort Worth's citizens?

Epic fail Fort Worth.

I am originally from Fort Worth and was chatting with a friend who still lives there. He reported there was no sand on any bridge around Loop 820, nor on any bridge on I-20. . .I don't think it was just North Fort Worth that was ignored.

I think the poster meant Far East Fort Worth often gets ignored.

Yeah, I-20 in southern Arlington didn't have any sand on the bridges when I drove on it yesterday. Smaller cities have done a better job. Like Kennedale worked on a lot of their roads (they twist in turn on little hills, so that's probably why).

Was Far East Fort Worth ignored? I was talking about North Fort Worth...

But yeah, it is kind of ridiculous that they are more concerned about the superbowl than their citizen's problems.

South and Southwest Fort Worth must have been ignored, too.

I just got in here and I basically had to do a scene out of an epic car chase just to pull into the street that leads to my neighborhood....

I suspect the sand is being used for some stadium in Arlington. The rest of us are on our own.

Well NW Fort Worth also gets ignored, cities won't invest (usually) on things they can't make profits off of, and most of those places would be where the "minorities" live like Latins, and other people. Don't be expecting the city to sart projects there, in Northside and Diamond Hill Area it's horrible we'll we have The Stockyards but apart from that pretty much everything else is messed up, and in my opinion (living in that area) they should send more police around here literally every single night my neighbors get out with loud music, start fighting, someone calls the cops and they arive 1hour later -.- and then the people notice the cops and run away I meant to record a video but Im not going to stay awake just for that *sigh
