Street Projects Under Construction

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 street landscaping. Water, sewer and storm drain work will soon be complete on the west side of the project. Once this work is complete, the west side paving, sidewalks and retaining wall work will begin. Landscaping will soon begin on the east side of the project. 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)

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

This project is substantially complete and punch list items are being completed.

Traffic Signal - Commerce Drive/Heritage Parkway

This project includes constructing a traffic signal at the Commerce Drive/Heritage Parkway intersection as well as improving the curb radius on the northwest corner and minor concrete panel replacements. The curb radius improvements and the minor concrete panel replacements will begin in November. Due to the signal pole fabrication time, the installation of the traffic signal will be begin in December.

Traffic Signal - East Broad Street/Mitchell Road

This project will install a traffic signal at the intersection of E. Broad Street/Mitchell Road. The traffic signal foundations were installed with the East Broad Street project. This project will install the signal infrastructure. This project has been bid. Due to signal pole fabrication time, the construction of the traffic signal will begin in January 2020.

Gertie Barrett Road - Turner Warnell Road to north city limits

This project is complete.

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. The project has been bid and construction is expected to begin early November.

Miscellaneous Concrete Roadway Rebuilds 

This project includes concrete rebuilds of various segments of York Drive, East Dallas Drive from Walnut Creek Drive to Live Oak Drive. It also includes conversion of the asphalt section on Clover Hill Road and asphalt pavement on Almond Drive between Yarmouth Lane and Fairfax Drive to concrete. This project has been bid. A construction date has not been determined.

Street Projects Under Design

Breckenridge 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 in which the City purchases the materials and Tarrant County provides the labor and equipment. This project will begin in early 2020.

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 are continuing. Due to delayed franchise utility relocations, the bidding of the project is delayed. The project will be publicly bid when franchise utility relocations are nearing completion.

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. City staff is currently reviewing 90 percent construction plans. The project is anticipated to bid near the end of the year, pending franchise utility relocations.

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 roadway with traffic signals possibly at the intersections with Grand Meadow Boulevard and Seeton Road. City staff is completing review of 60 percent construction plans and beginning any necessary right-of-way acquisition. 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 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. The project is awaiting conceptual approval from TxDOT.

TxDOT Projects

TxDOT has begun environmental and schematic design of both the northbound and southbound frontage roads of U.S. 287 between the Union Pacific Railroad and Lone Star Road. A public meeting for stakeholder input was held on July 16. This project will be designed in-house by TxDOT. The anticipated bid date is late 2020.
