Street Bond Program (construction)
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. The first phase, a 300-foot section at the west end, is complete. Storm drainage and creek channel improvements are being completed. Subgrade preparation for pavement will begin soon. Total project completion is anticipated to be late spring 2018.
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. The off-ramp relocation on the southbound side is complete, as well as the main driveway into Home Depot. The new northbound on-ramp is complete. The Texas Turn at Debbie Lane recently opened to traffic. The final component is to construct a northbound off-ramp at the old on-ramp location. Total project completion is scheduled for April 2018.
Debbie Lane Reconstruction (FM 157 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 City 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. Street pavement is complete on the north side and traffic will move to these lanes to allow for reconstruction of the south side. Total project completion will be summer 2018.
Traffic Signal (Heritage Parkway at Matlock Road)
Project is complete.
Price Road at South Main Street
Price Road will be realigned at the south end to provide for a perpendicular intersection at Main Street. It will intersect Main opposite the existing Sentry Drive. This section of Price will be concrete with curb and gutter. The project also includes a left-turn lane on eastbound Heritage Parkway just east of Main Street. Construction is under way.
Street Bond Program (design)
Turner Warnell (Callender Road to existing end)
This project will complete a four-lane, divided thoroughfare from the existing end point to Callender Road. Callender will also be completed to the south. The west and north roadway approaches into Arlington will be limited to transitions to the existing asphalt. Final plans are being completed and staff is in the process of negotiating right-of-way and coordinating utility relocations. Construction should begin late summer 2018.
South Main Street (Broad Street to Hunt Street)
South Main Street will be designed as an urban complete street with a four-lane roadway incorporating on-street parking, bicycle and pedestrian facilities and enhanced streetscape. Conceptual design is complete and preliminary construction plans are being prepared.
Magnolia Street (Broad Street to Wisteria Street)
This project is a reconstruction to a concrete collector including storm drain improvements and water line replacement. Final plans are being prepared by the design consultant. Staff is working on right-of-way and easement acquisition.
Traffic Signal (Matlock Road at Ragland Road)
Preliminary plans have been reviewed and final design is under way.
Right-Turn Lane (Walnut Creek Drive southbound at Pleasant Ridge Drive)
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. The project includes significant storm drainage improvements and sewer extensions. Paving is under way.
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 are included. Bids have been opened and a contract awarded.
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. Bids have been opened and a contract awarded. Work is underway and expected to be completed by August 2018.
Tarrant County CDBG Projects
Tarrant Street (Dallas Street to Kimball Street)
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. Utilities are complete and the subgrade is being prepared for pavement.
North Street (North of Newt Patterson Road)
This is the 2017 CDBG reconstruction project. North Street will be improved to a concrete street with curb and gutter, storm drain system and new water main. Preliminary design is under way.
SH 360 South
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 US 287. The main lanes will be constructed as toll lanes with the frontage roads remaining toll free. Construction continues. The Broad Street and Heritage Parkway bridges are now open and the crossing at Holland Road is closed for bridge construction. The replacement of the Tarrant Regional Water District pipelines at Lone Star Parkway is underway and that intersection is open on temporary pavement. It will need to be replaced with the permanent intersection pavement at a later time. For detailed up-to-date construction progress, visit www.drive360south.com. Substantial completion is scheduled for April 2018.
