Street Bond Program (construction)
South Holland Phase 1 (Grand Meadow to Waterford Glen)
This section of Holland will be improved to a four-lane, divided arterial. Work is still under way on the pavement along the frontage of Judy Miller Elementary School and the connection to the old alignment.
Mouser Way (House Road to U.S. 287)
Mouser Way currently extends east from Main Street to House Road. This project will complete Mouser Way to the U.S. 287 southbound frontage road. It will be a four-lane, undivided collector, with storm drain system and a large drainage culvert crossing Watson Branch. Phase 1, 300-foot section at the west end, is complete. Utility relocations for the remainder of the project are nearly complete. Construction bids were opened March 30 and a proposed contract was awarded at the April 24 council meeting.
This project is primarily to replace the water and sewer lines, but the asphalt roadway pavement will be reconstructed full width. Water and sewer main replacement are complete and roadway work is under way.
U.S. 287 Ramps and Texas U-Turn (Walnut Creek Drive to Debbie Lane)
The scope of this project is to reconfigure the on and off ramps on U.S. 287 between Walnut Creek Drive and Debbie Lane and construct a U-turn from the northbound to southbound frontage road at Debbie Lane. This is a TxDOT managed project. Construction is under way on the u-turn and driveway reconfiguration on the northbound side. The u-turn and driveway work on both sides are scheduled to be complete in August 2017. Total project completion is scheduled for April 2018.
Debbie Lane Reconstruction (FM157 to Main Street)
The original project scope included adding medians to create a divided road, resurfacing the existing asphalt pavement, and adding sidewalks. With direction from Council the project was redefined as a fully-reconstructed, six-lane concrete pavement section that will allow this road to serve as a designated truck route. Construction is expected to begin June 5 with a total duration of approximately one year.
Traffic Signal on Heritage Parkway at Matlock Road)
Construction will begin this month.
Street Bond Program (design)
Turner Warnell (Callender Road to existing end)
This project is a four-lane, divided thoroughfare. The City of Arlington does not have funds available for participation so the west and north roadway approaches to the intersection will be limited. Final plans are being completed and staff is in the process of negotiating right-of-way and coordinating utility relocations. Construction is expected to begin late summer.
South Main Street (Broad to Hunt)
South Main Street will be designed as a four-lane roadway incorporating on-street parking, bicycle and pedestrian facilities and enhanced streetscape. Conceptual design is complete. Staff will conduct meetings with the adjacent property owners and begin coordinating utility relocations through the next two months. A design contract for preparation of construction documents will be proposed on the Council agenda in May.
Magnolia Street (Broad to Wisteria)
This project is a reconstruction to a concrete collector street including storm drain improvements and water line replacement. Preliminary design is under way.
Antler Drive (existing to FM 917)
This project is funded by the Mansfield Economic Development Corporation. The roadway will be completed from the current terminus to FM 917 as a concrete collector roadway. The project includes significant storm drainage improvements and sewer extensions. Construction is under way on sewer and drainage structures.
Regency Parkway (existing end to Heritage Parkway)
Regency will be completed to Heritage as a four-lane, undivided roadway. Water main and storm drainage improvements will be included. Plans are complete and right-of-way acquisition is under way.
East Broad Street (U.S. 287 to Cannon Drive)
Broad Street will be reconstructed to a six-lane, divided thoroughfare. Improvements will include a traffic signal at Regency Parkway and dual left-turn lanes for eastbound traffic at Cannon. Final plans will be complete in May, a bid date will depend on utility relocation efforts. Oncor has relocation plans prepared and should begin in May. Roadway construction should begin summer 2017.
Tarrant County CDBG Projects
Tarrant Street (Dallas to Kimball)
This is the 2016 CDBG reconstruction project. Tarrant will be improved to a concrete street with curb and gutter, storm drain system, and new water main. Tarrant County opened bids for construction March 29.
TxDOT has contracted this as a design/build project with Lane/Abrams to complete State Highway 360 from its current termination at Green Oaks Blvd in Arlington to U.S. 287. The main lanes will be constructed as toll lanes with the frontage roads remaining toll free. Construction is underway. Broad Street and Heritage intersections are currently detoured to allow construction of the bridges at these crossings. Broad Street should reopen later this spring and Heritage Parkway this summer. Lone Star Parkway is now detoured through May 2017 for replacement of Tarrant Regional Water District pipelines. For detailed, up-to-date construction progress, visit www.drive360south.com. Substantial completion has been extended to April 2018.
