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 include a traffic signal at Regency Parkway and dual left-turn lanes for eastbound traffic at Cannon Drive. Pavement for the westbound lanes is complete. Paving is complete for a majority of the eastbound lanes.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, it has been determined that City staff misunderstood the latest project schedule and the anticipated traffic switch to both sides of the roadway will not occur until mid-February. The good news is that although the traffic switch date was incorrect, this is not a project delay. Work in the medians and along the roadside will take another several weeks following the traffic switch. Barring any significant weather delays, the project is still scheduled for completion middle to late March.
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 Parks & Recreation. Final project completion is scheduled for the end of January, 2019.
Traffic Signal (Matlock at Ragland roads) - Street Bond Fund
Signal is operational. Contractor is completing final punch list items including signage and connecting to the city’s traffic management system.
South Main Street (Broad to Hunt streets) - Street Bond Fund
South Main Street will be reconstructed as an urban complete street. It will be a four-lane roadway incorporating on-street parking, bicycle and pedestrian facilities and enhanced streetscape. Franchise utilities are completing relocations and utility construction is underway. Project completion is expected in November, 2019.
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. This project was publicly bid in December, 2018. A resolution for award of a construction contract is on the Jan. 14 council agenda. Construction is expected to begin in early March.
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. Franchise utility relocations are continuing. The project is expected to be publicly bid in March.
Magnolia Street (East Broad Street to North Wisteria Street) - Street Bond Fund
This project is a reconstruction to a concrete collector including storm drain improvements and water line replacement. Final bid documents are being prepared by the design consultant. Franchise utility relocations are continuing. The project is expected to be publicly bid in March.
Day Miar Road (Grand Meadow Boulevard to Seeton Road) - Street Bond Fund
Day Miar Road is planned 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 to the detention area north of Lake Ridge High School. It will then cross to the eastside of the road through an improved culvert. Sidewalks will be included along both sides of the road. Traffic signals are possible at the intersections with Grand Meadow Boulevard and Seeton Road. Construction plans are approximately 60 percent complete and are currently under review by staff.
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 completed and construction plans are being prepared. Staff and the design consultant are coordinating a construction permit with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
North 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 the 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. The consultant is also conducting flood studies of Watson Branch.
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 and a few hundred feet to the east. A traffic signal at Holland and National Parkway will also be included. Construction plans are approximately 60% complete and are currently under review by staff.
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. Lanes are open to traffic. Punchlist items are being addressed by the contractor.
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.
