Street Projects under Construction

East Broad Street -U.S. 287 to Cannon Drive (MEDC Bonds, Street Bond Fund)

East Broad Street is being 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. Paving is now essentially complete for the entire project. Work is continuing on sidewalks, ramps, medians, irrigation and traffic signals. The project is expected to be complete by the end of April.

South Main Street-Broad Street to Hunt Street (Street Bond Fund)

South Main Street is being 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 relocation and utility construction is almost complete. Construction was recently stopped due to an existing storm drain conflict, but has resumed. Paving operations will soon begin on the east half of the roadway. Project completion is expected in November.

North Street - north of Newt Patterson Road (2017 and 2018 Tarrant County CDBG, Street Bond Fund)

North Street is being reconstructed as a concrete street with curb and gutter, storm drain system and new water and sewer lines. Construction is now underway starting with water and sewer construction. The project is expected be complete in November.

Seeton Road-at Joe Pool Lake (Street Bond Fund)

This project is to repair the subsurface failures under Seeton Road both north and south of the bridge over Joe Pool Lake. Deep failures in the earth under the pavement are causing failures on the surface and continued maintenance is no longer cost effective. The project was publicly bid on Feb. 28, and construction will begin mid-May with an expected completion by early August prior to the start of school. Seeton Road will be closed at this location for the duration of the project. Detour routes will be posted.

Street Projects Under Design

Turner Warnell Road-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 May.

Magnolia Street-East Broad Street to North Wisteria Street (Street Bond Fund)

Magnolia Street is being reconstructed to a concrete collector street including storm drain improvements and water line replacement. Construction plans and bid documents are complete. Franchise utility relocations will be continuing for approximately the next three months. The project is expected to be publicly bid this summer.

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. 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 roadway, with possible traffic signals at the intersections with Grand Meadow Boulevard and Seeton Road. Construction plans are 60 percent complete and are currently under review by city staff. Construction funding for this project is scheduled for 2020.

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 the intersection of Main and FM 157. It will also eliminate the current skewed intersection of Russell Road and FM 157 reducing 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 improved to a four-lane, divided thoroughfare. The project will include completion of 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. Engineering staff has reviewed preliminary plans.

Traffic Signal-Commerce Drive/Heritage Parkway

This traffic signal is currently under design. It is anticipated to bid in June with construction to begin this summer.

TxDOT Projects

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 tentatively scheduled to bid for construction in April 2020.
