The Charles Schwab Challenge is making its debut at the Colonial Country Club this year as the company has taken over title sponsorship to one of the PGA Tour's most respected and longest-running events.
And with it comes a lot of traffic, which means the annual closing of numerous streets around the club. At its meeting Tuesday night, the Fort Worth City Council approved the closing of these streets during the time of the tournament and corresponding events, May 20-26:
*3600-3700 blocks of Country Club Circle.
*3700-3900 blocks of Mockingbird Lane to include Mockingbird Court.
*3600-3700 blocks of Cantey Street (from Highview Terrace to the west end of the street).

Colonial Country Club requested the street closures and operational modifications around the venue during the golf tournament. The closures will reduce the amount of traffic in the adjacent neighborhoods, along with improving access for emergency vehicles and ensure the safety of the participants and spectators.
Residents will still be allowed access to their homes at all times.
The affected neighborhood associations support the street closures. A traffic control plan and detour route has been approved.
