2013 marked the start of construction on I-35W from I-30 downtown to US 81/287 to the north. This $1.6 billion, 10-mile reconstruction will significantly expand capacity by rebuilding the general purpose main lanes and adding two managed toll lanes in each direction.

Construction north of the I-820/I-35W interchange is expected to be completed in late 2017; construction south of the interchange will begin in 2014 and is expected to be completed in 2018.

AMON CARTER MUSEUM PRESENTS ARCHIBALD MOTLEY: JAZZ AGE MODERNIST

June 14, 2014 - September 07, 2014
Address: 3501 Camp Bowie Boulevard
Fort Worth, TX 76107

Times: Sun 12:00-5:00 p.m., Tues-Wed-Fri-Sat 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Thurs 10:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m.

Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist is the first retrospective of the American artist's paintings in two decades. Archibald John Motley Jr. (1891-1981) is one of the most significant yet least known twentieth-century artists, despite the continued broad appeal of his paintings. Many of his most important portraits and cultural scenes remain in private collections and few museums have had the opportunity to acquire his work.


FORT WORTH HERD CATTLE DRIVE

The Texas Longhorn and the American Cowboy are two of the most enduring symbols of the Old West. They're a big reason why Fort Worth earned the nickname "Cowtown" and they formed the core of the great cattle drives of the late nineteenth century. Now, the romance and mystique of cowboys and cattle drives returns to Fort Worth with The Herd - Texas Longhorns driven by genuine Texas cowhands - offering an unforgettable glimpse into the past. You'll hear the jingle of spurs, the cattle bawling, and the rhythm of the hoof beats. As The Herd passes, a bygone era comes to life before your eyes. Look for the Drovers before and after each cattle drive for photo opportunities and to learn more about life on the trail!

Every day at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
130 E. Exchange Avenue
Fort Worth, TX 76164
