Street Projects Under Construction

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

South Holland Road will be improved to a four-lane divided thoroughfare.  The project will include completing the north side of National Parkway west of Holland Rd. and several hundred feet to the east.  A traffic signal at Holland Rd. and National Pkwy. is also included.  This project will require the construction of detour pavement on the east side of the existing roadway to accommodate construction of the project.

The project was awarded for construction in December 2021.  Two telecommunication companies are currently relocating their facilities to clear this project for construction.  Construction is anticipated to start in the next few weeks and its estimated duration is 14 months.

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

The two westbound lanes of Heritage Parkway are being reconstructed due to poor pavement condition.  A sidewalk is included on the north side of the roadway. The westbound lanes are complete and open to traffic.  The project is expected to be complete by the end of April.

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.  Also included will be sidewalks along both sides of the roadway, two pedestrian crossings at the MISD school sites, and traffic signals at the intersections with Grand Meadow Blvd. and Seeton Rd.

Final plans are near completion and franchise utility companies are working on relocations which should be complete for the project to begin construction in the third quarter of this year.  The estimated construction duration is 18 months.

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 Watson Branch Lane, the future roadway located within 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.  Right-of-way acquisition is underway.

Design will begin later this year with construction anticipated to begin in 2023.  A first phase of this project constructed a traffic signal at the intersection of FM 157 and future Watson Branch Lane along with northbound and southbound left turn lanes on FM 157.  The signal will be operational soon.

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

This project will reconstruct Gertie Barrett Road as a 2-lane undivided 24-foot-wide asphalt roadway.  Additionally, a new east/west 4-lane undivided roadway will be constructed between Gertie Barrett Road and N. Main Street.  The location of this east/west roadway will align with Simpson Lane on the west side of Gertie Barrett Road.  This project will involve coordination and an agreement with TxDOT.

Construction plans are nearing completion and franchise utilities are planning their relocations.  Construction is anticipated to begin in the third quarter of this year.

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

As a part of the Tarrant County CDBG program, Pond Street between Broad St. and Lake St. will be reconstructed with curb and gutter, sidewalks, and new water and sewer lines.  The project is currently under design and construction is anticipated to begin in the third quarter of this year.

S. Main Street (US Bus Hwy 287)/Heritage Parkway (FM 917) Intersection Improvements

This project will add northbound and southbound right-turn lanes to the intersection of S. Main Street/Heritage Parkway.  In addition, sidewalks will be added on the eastside of S. Main Street from the Forest Brook Subdivision to Price Road.  This project will involve coordination with TxDOT.  

Engineering design contracts are in the process of being executed.  An anticipated construction start date has not yet been determined.

TxDOT Projects

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

This project includes construction of both the northbound and southbound frontage roads of US 287 between the Union Pacific Railroad and Lone Star Road as well as additional lanes at the  Lone Star Road bridge and a southbound to northbound U-Turn.  Furthermore, this project will include traffic signals at the Heritage Pkwy/NB US 287 jug handle intersection along with signals at the intersections of the NB and SB US 287 Frontage Roads at Lone Star Road and US Business 287 at Lone Star Road.

This project has bid, and utility relocations have begun.  Roadway construction should begin in June.  The estimated construction time is 26 months.
