Street Projects Under Construction

 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 that will connect to the existing asphalt. Paving on both Turner Warnell and Callender roads is complete. Striping will begin soon on both roadways. The project is expected to be complete in early November.

Miscellaneous Concrete Roadway Reconstruction 

This project is now complete.

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

This project is now complete.

Mansfield International Business Park - Klein Boulevard and South Seventh Avenue

The Mansfield Economic Development Corporation is constructing the Mansfield International Business Park on land near Easy Drive and South Second Avenue. This project will construct Klein Boulevard, a four-lane, divided roadway, from FM 917 west across South Second Avenue and through the business park. It also includes constructing South Seventh Avenue, a three-lane, undivided roadway along the western boundary north to Easy Drive. Both roadways include water, sanitary sewer and storm drain improvements. Also, due to poor pavement condition and anticipated increased traffic volumes, this project includes asphalt improvements to South Second Avenue from the proposed Klein Boulevard south to FM 917. Utility work is being finalized, and the construction of the pavement subgrade has begun. Paving will begin in October. The project is expected to be complete near the end of this year.

South Holland Road - Stonebriar Trail to Garden Path Lane (Street Bond Fund)

This section of 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 is also included. This project requires significant detour pavement be constructed to accommodate construction of the project. Franchise utility companies have significant overhead infrastructure that must be relocated prior to beginning the project. These utility relocations are expected to start mid-October. The project will be publicly bid on Oct. 14 and construction is expected to start in late December. The estimated construction time is 12 months.

Street Projects Under Design

Day Miar Road - Grand Meadow Boulevard to Seeton Road (Street Bond Fund)

Day Miar Road improvement plans include a four-lane, undivided concrete street. Roadway drainage with curb and gutter is also planned, 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. Traffic signals are included at the intersections with Grand Meadow Boulevard and Seeton Road. A study was completed to analyze the pedestrian needs and safety around the MISD school sites to determine any additional project safety enhancements. This project will begin when the City of Grand Prairie nears completion of their Seeton Road reconstruction. Both cities are coordinating schedules to assure acceptable traffic routing in this region. City staff is working on right-of-way acquisition. The project is expected to bid summer 2021.

North Main Street / FM 157 Connector (Street Bond Fund)

The proposed connector is a four-lane, undivided roadway that will provide a connection from North Main Street to FM 157. This roadway will be located approximately a half-mile north of Mouser Way and will align with the roadway in the future Watson Branch development. The connector will reduce traffic volumes along the frontage of Legacy High School and at the intersection of Main and FM 157. This project will also 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 consultant is also conducting flood studies of Watson Branch. In addition, this project will add a traffic signal at the future intersection of this roadway with FM 157. The traffic signal and turn lane improvements on FM 157 are currently under plan review by TxDOT. The traffic signal and turn lane construction on FM 157 is expected to begin by the end of the year.

Price Road - East Dallas Street to South Main Street (Street Bond Fund)

Price Road will be reconstructed to a 26-foot wide asphalt roadway. The project will include bar ditch and driveway culvert improvements to improve drainage capacity where feasible. The design will also include the realignment of Price Road at the intersection of East Dallas Street, providing a safer intersection closer to 90 degrees than the existing intersection. Design is approximately 75 percent complete. The project is expected to bid near the end of this year. 

Heritage Parkway Westbound Lanes - Commerce Drive to South Main Street (Street Bond Fund)

The two westbound lanes of Heritage Parkway will be reconstructed due to current pavement conditions. A sidewalk will be included on the north side of the roadway. Design is approximately 50 percent complete. Construction is expected to start near the end of this year.

Lake Street - Tarrant Street to Pond Street (Community Development Block Grant, CDBG)

As a part of the Tarrant County CDBG program, Lake Street between Tarrant and Pond streets is being reconstructed with curb and gutter, a sidewalk on the south side and a new water line. Roadway design is approximately 60 percent complete. Construction is expected to start near the end of this year. 

TxDOT Projects

U.S. 287 Frontage Roads - Union Pacific Railroad to Lone Star Road

TxDOT is in the engineering design process of both the northbound and southbound frontage roads of U.S. 287 between the Union Pacific Railroad and Lone Star Road. This also includes the Lone Star Road bridge lanes.  This project will include traffic signals at the Heritage Parkway and the northbound U.S. 287 jug handle intersection, along with signals at the intersections of the U.S. 287 frontage roads and Lone Star Road and U.S. Business 287 and Lone Star Road. The expected bid date is June 2021 with construction beginning in fall 2021. Estimated construction time is 18 months.
