IT'S A RIVER! Every river in Texas is small like the Trinity. There are navigable rivers that are dammed! I have seen it on Modern Marvels tv show. They built a lake on a navigable river, the ships go through a lock and dam to get down the river.

I know this is random but I wish Ft Worth would also worry about its horrible parts of the city, like the Northside and diamond hill area, that place is filled with people and zero businesses the only business you can find in Diamond hill is 1 gas station and abandoned commercial zones that have buildings that aren't fixed up I wished Ft Worth would fix that area, the truth about cities is that they won't invest on things that they don't make profits from, so Diamond Hill an Northsode will continue being gang infested and horrible looking , and about the bridge I've seen the design but I tight it was for Dallas' second bridge, I've seen images on it being built in ft worth but it seems kinda too good to be true łöł

It's so halerious how people are getting mad over a bridge if y'all don't like it then deal with it no one is telling you to even look at it or might as well leave Fort Worth just because your scared of a bridge it's so funny how there's always 1 person in the whole world that will disagree and argue about the smallest and simplest things and make into a big deal lol, and I hope Fort Worth actually thinks more ahead of 2030 and looks into how the city will be in a 100 years, they really really really need to improve that skyline, only six skyscarpers that stand out -.- and I only like two of them, The Omni Hotel and the one that was rebuilt (forgot the name), but then again they aren't that tall and could always be built taller :\ oh well whatever this city does I'll always like it even if they come up with bad projects or suggestions, and I love that bridge it's so awesome, way better than Dallas' two bridges, and I hope fort worth passes Dallas because we are the 6th faster growing city in USA and that's way faster than Dallas, I'll stop there getting öff topic but you get my point

Ok?! Some people don't even realize that Fort Worth is bigger than Miami, Atlanta, Minneapolis, New Orleans and many other cities. Even if Fort Worth passes Dallas, it wouldn't change anything. People will still consider Dallas to be the bigger city (Heck, people still think San Antonio is smaller than Dallas). Just look at San Jose, people have no idea that it's bigger than San Francisco. A vast majority of Fort Worth's growth is suburban. That reinforces the idea of Fort Worth being a suburb of Dallas.
