Street Projects Under Construction
East Broad Street - U.S. 287 to Cannon Drive (MEDC Bonds, Street Bond Fund)
East 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 Drive. Turn lanes, driveways and intersection pavement on the north side will be completed by late July and traffic moved to the north side. The south side phase of the project will progress much more quickly than the north side, but the mid-August completion date deadline is not possible. The updated schedule indicates main roadway paving will be complete and traffic on both sides of the road by mid-October. Work on medians and along the roadside will take another few weeks with final project completion by late November. The contractor and city staff are working to compress this schedule as much as possible.
Regency Parkway – existing end to Heritage Parkway (MEDC Bonds, Street Bond Fund)
Regency will be completed to Heritage as a four-lane, undivided roadway. Water main and storm drainage improvements are included. This project was substantially complete in May, ahead of schedule. Punch list items still need to be completed to close the project.
Mouser Way - House Road to U.S. 287 (Street Bond Fund)
This project is substantially complete and open to traffic. Punch list items need to be completed, and street lights will be installed by Oncor.
U.S. 287 Ramps and Texas U-Turn - Walnut Creek Drive to Debbie Lane (Street Bond Fund)
Project is complete. TxDOT will restripe the southbound frontage road at Debbie Lane to improve left turn movements.
Debbie Lane Reconstruction - FM157 to Main Street (Street Bond Fund)
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 to allow this road to serve as a designated truck route. A few construction items remain including median work, sidewalks and street lights to be installed by Oncor. Total project completion is anticipated by the end of July 2018.
Price Road at South Main Street (Street Bond Fund)
Project is complete.
North Main Street - Oak Street to Town Park (TAP Grant, Street Bond Fund)
This project is a streetscape improvement and not a roadway widening. The existing roadway configuration will remain as a four-lane, undivided road, but with widened and protected hike and bike pathways on both sides of the driving lanes. Enhanced lighting and fencing will be added to the bridge over the railroad and Walnut Creek, and parallel parking will be added north and south of the bridge. The project is managed by the Parks & Recreation Department. Construction is under way with completion scheduled for the end of 2018.
Traffic Signal - Matlock Road at Ragland Road (Street Bond Fund)
A construction contract was awarded at the March 5 city council meeting. Although the goal was to complete this project by mid-August, poles and mast arms will not be available until the end of September. The contractor will complete as much work as possible beginning this month, but will not be able to finalize the installation until materials are delivered.
Right Turn Lane - Walnut Creek Drive southbound at Pleasant Ridge Drive (Street Bond Fund)
Construction is under way and anticipated to be complete by end of July.
Street Projects Under Design
Turner Warnell - Callender Road to Wayland Court (Street Bond Fund)
This project will complete a four-lane, divided thoroughfare from the existing end point near Wayland Court, west to Callender Road. It will provide a direct route between FM 157 and U.S. 287. Callender Road will also be completed to the south. The west and north roadway approaches into the City of Arlington will be limited to transitions to the existing asphalt. Final plans are being completed for bid, and the staff is finalizing easement acquisition. Franchise utility relocations are under way. The bid advertisement for the project will be available in August.
South Main Street - Broad Street to Hunt Street (Street Bond Fund)
South Main Street will be reconstructed as a four-lane roadway incorporating on-street parking, bicycle and pedestrian facilities and enhanced urban streetscape. Final construction plans are being prepared for bids, and staff is coordinating improvements with affected adjacent property owners. Franchise utility relocations are underway and should be cleared by late August or early September. The project should be advertised for bids in August with an anticipated start date of late September. Total construction time should be approximately 12 months.
Magnolia Street - Broad Street to Wisteria Street (Street Bond Fund)
This project is a reconstruction to a concrete collector street including storm drain improvements and water line replacement. Final bid documents are being prepared by the design consultant. Staff is working on right-of-way and easement acquisition, and utility relocations are under design. The project should bid August 2018
North Street - North of Newt Patterson Road (2017 and 2018 Tarrant County CDBG, Street Bond Fund)
North Street will be improved to a concrete street with curb and gutter, storm drain system, and new water main. Final plans have been submitted for City staff review.
Day Miar Road - Grand Meadow Boulevard to Seeton Road (Street Bond Fund)
Plans call for Day Miar Road to be improved to a four-lane, undivided concrete roadway. Roadway drainage will be curb and gutter with inlets and piping draining to an improved parallel open channel on the west side of the road. The open channel will extend from the south side of Grand Meadow Boulevard to the detention area north of Lake Ridge High School and then cross to the east side of the road through an improved culvert. Sidewalks will be included along both sides of the road, and traffic signals may be included at the intersections with Grand Meadow Boulevard and Seeton Road. Preliminary design is under way.
Seeton Road at Joe Pool Lake (Street Bond Fund)
This project is to design a repair solution for the subsurface failures under Seeton Road both north and south of the bridge over Joe Pool Lake. Deep failures in the earthen embankment under the pavement are causing excessive pavement failures. Surface maintenance is no longer cost effective. A geotechnical investigation has been conducted to guide the design and construction plans are being prepared.
Main Street / FM 157 Connector (Street Bond Fund)
The proposed connector is a four-lane, undivided roadway providing a connection from North Main Street to FM 157 approximately a half mile north of Mouser Way. The connector would reduce traffic volume along the frontage of Legacy High School and at the intersection of Main and FM 157. It will eliminate the current skewed intersection of Russell Road and FM 157 and will reduce flooding potential of Watson Branch upstream of Russell Road. The project is in the conceptual design phase to seek TxDOT approvals and determine right-of-way needs.
South Holland Road - Stonebriar Trail to Garden Path Lane (Street Bond Fund)
Holland Road will be designed as a four-lane, divided thoroughfare. The project will include finishing the north side of National Parkway west of Holland Road and a few hundred feet to the east. A traffic signal at Holland Road and National Parkway will also be included. A contract for design services is on the July 9 Council agenda for approval.
TxDOT has contracted this as a design/build project with Lane/Abrams to complete State Highway 360 from its current termination at Green Oaks Boulevard in Arlington to U.S. 287. The main lanes will be constructed as toll lanes with the frontage roads remaining toll free. New traffic signals have been installed on the frontage roads at Heritage Parkway; work at the intersections with Holland Road, East Broad Street, Lone Star Road and U.S. 287 are still underway. The contractor’s current schedule shows completion by the end of July. For detailed up-to-date construction progress, visit www.drive360south.com.
U.S. 287 Frontage Roads - Heritage Parkway to Lone Star Road
TxDOT has begun environmental and schematic design of both the northbound and southbound frontage roads of U.S. 287 between Heritage Parkway and Lone Star Road. This project is scheduled to bid for construction in April 2020.
