Street Projects Under Construction

Mansfield International Business Park (Klein Boulevard and South Seventh Avenue)

This project is now complete.

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 Rd. and a few hundred feet to the east.  A traffic signal at Holland Rd. and National Pkwy. 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 construction.  The utility relocations are still in progress.  Construction will begin as soon as they are completed, possibly late summer.  The estimated construction time is 14 months.

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.  Construction has started and is anticipated to be complete in December.

Concord Drive (Country Club Drive to Stratford Drive)

This project will reconstruct the asphalt portion of Concord Drive as a concrete roadway.   The project is currently under construction and is anticipated to be complete in September.   The contractor is required to have at least half the roadway complete and open to traffic prior to the beginning of the upcoming school 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.  Construction is underway and is anticipated to be complete in December.

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 St. and Pond St. is being reconstructed with curb and gutter, a sidewalk on the south side, and a new water line.  This project has been publicly bid and construction is anticipated to start on August 16, 2021.   The anticipated construction time for this project is 4 months.

Mathis Road (Mitchell Road to Matlock Road)

This project will reconstruct Mathis Road from Mitchell Road to the existing concrete section just west of Matlock Road as a 2-lane undivided 24-foot wide asphalt roadway.   Construction will take place in July 2021.

Street Projects Under Design

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 Blvd. 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 and traffic signals at the intersections with Grand Meadow Blvd. and Seeton Rd.  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 reconstruction of Seeton Road.  Both cities are coordinating schedules to assure acceptable traffic routing in this region.  City staff is working on right-of-way acquisition.  Plans and franchise utility relocations should be complete for the project to bid early next year.

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 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.  TxDOT is in the process of approving the construction agreement. This traffic signal and turn lane construction on FM 157 is anticipated to begin in August 2021.

Gertie Barrett Road (Meadowside Drive to Wildwood Drive) - Street Bond Fund

This project will reconstruct Gertie Barrett Road as a two-lane, undivided 24-foot wide asphalt roadway. In addition, a new east/west four-lane, undivided roadway will be constructed between Gertie Barrett Road and North Main Street. The location of this east/west roadway will align with Simpson Lane. Approximately 60 percent of the design plans are under review. This project will involve coordination and an agreement with TxDOT.

Mitchell Road (Heritage Parkway to Mathis Road)

This project will reconstruct Mitchell Road from the existing concrete section just south of Heritage Parkway to Mathis Road as a two-lane, undivided 24-foot wide asphalt roadway. Engineering design is underway. Construction is expected in late fall 2021.

TxDOT Projects

US 287 Frontage Roads (UP Railroad to Lone Star Road)

The engineering design is underway by TxDOT for the proposed northbound and southbound frontage roads of U.S. 287 between the Union Pacific Railroad and Lone Star Road, as well as additional Lone Star Road bridge lanes. This project also includes traffic signals at the Heritage Parkway/northbound U.S. 287 jug handle intersection, the U.S. 287 frontage road/Lone Star Road intersection and the U.S. Business 287/Lone Star Road intersections. The bid date is August 2021 with construction beginning in late 2021/early 2022. The estimated construction time is 18 months.
