Street Projects Under Construction

East Broad Street (U.S. 287 to Cannon Drive)

(MEDC Bonds, Street Bond Fund)

The project is substantially complete. Punch list items are currently being completed.

South Main Street (Broad to Hunt streets)

(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. As part of the next phase, traffic will soon move to the east side of the project. Due to significant grade difference and utility work, Hunt Street will also be closed at South Main Street. Water, sewer and storm drain work will then begin on the west side followed by paving. Franchise utilities are continuing to be relocated as the project progresses. Project completion is expected to be in November 2019.

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. Sanitary sewer is now complete but work continues on water lines and storm drains. 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 earthen embankment under the pavement are causing excessive failures. Surface maintenance is no longer cost effective. The project is currently under construction. Seeton Road is currently closed at this location and will remain closed for the duration of the project. Detour routes are posted. Seeton Road is expected to reopen Aug. 12.

Traffic Signal (Commerce Drive/Heritage Parkway)

This project includes constructing a traffic signal at the Commerce Drive/Heritage Parkway intersection along with improving the curb radius on the northwest corner and minor concrete panel replacements. This project was bid on June 25.  Depending on the availability of materials, construction could begin in August.

Gertie Barrett Road (Turner Warnell Road to north city limits)

This project includes rebuilding the asphalt pavement and improving drainage. Tarrant County will do the work through an interlocal agreement. The city purchases the materials and Tarrant County provides the labor and equipment. The project is expected to be complete in early August.

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 now complete. The project is expected to bid in July.

Street Projects Under Design

Breckinridge Road (Debbie Lane to cul-de-sac)

This project includes rebuilding the asphalt pavement. The work will be performed by Tarrant County through an interlocal agreement. Through this agreement the city purchases the materials and Tarrant County provides the labor and equipment. The project start date is dependent on the availability of Tarrant County crews. The project is expected to begin in late summer/early fall.

Magnolia Street (East Broad to North Wisteria streets)

(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 are continuing. The project is expected to bid in late summer.

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 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. Construction plans are underway, and the project is anticipated to bid near the end of the year.

Day Miar Road (Grand Meadow Boulevard to Seeton Road)

(Street Bond Fund)

Plans call for Day Miar Road to be expanded and rebuilt 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. It will then cross to the east side of the road through an improved culvert. Sidewalks will be constructed along both sides of the roadway with possible traffic signals at the intersections with Grand Meadow Boulevard and Seeton Road. Construction plans are approximately 60 percent complete and are still under review by city staff. 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 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. The consultant is also conducting flood studies of Watson Branch.

Traffic Signal (East Broad Street/Mitchell Road)

This traffic signal is currently out for bid. The bid opening date is July 25.  Dependent upon materials, construction is expected to begin in September/October.

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.  TxDOT has scheduled a public meeting to seek public input on July 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. at R.L. Anderson building, 1016 Magnolia St.
