Street Projects Under Construction

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

South Holland Road will expand to a four-lane divided thoroughfare. The project includes completing the north side of National Parkway west of Holland Road and several hundred feet to the east. The project also includes a traffic signal at Holland Road and National. This project requires creating temporary detour pavement on the existing roadway’s east side to accommodate construction.

The project was awarded for construction in December 2021. Franchise utilities have been relocated and construction will begin the first part of this month with various lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and asphalt detours. Construction will also begin soon on the storm drain lines and a 24" sewer line. The project is anticipated to take approximately 14 months to complete.

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

Crews completed construction of the two westbound lanes of Heritage Parkway due to poor pavement condition along with a sidewalk on the north side.

S. Mitchell Road (Mansfield Economic Development Fund)

This project will extend the concrete portion of S. Mitchell Road 300 feet to the south.  This project is a cooperative effort between the developer of property on the southwest corner of Heritage Parkway and S. Mitchell Road and the Mansfield Economic Development Corporation.   Construction is underway. Mitchell Road south of Heritage Parkway is closed and detour routes are provided. Staff anticipates construction to finish in mid-August.

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 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. The project also includes sidewalks along both sides of the roadway, two pedestrian crossings at the MISD school sites, and traffic signals at the intersections with Grand Meadow Boulevard and Seeton Road.

Final plans are near completion and franchise utility companies are working on relocations.  These relocations have been delayed but should be complete for the project to begin construction in the fourth 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 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.

 Design has begun with construction anticipated to begin mid-2023.  

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. Additionally, a new east/west four-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 Community Development Block Grant program, Pond Street between Broad Street and Lake Street 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 fourth quarter of this year.

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

This project will add northbound and southbound right-turn lanes and pedestrian improvements 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.  

 Design has begun with construction anticipated to begin in the third quarter of 2023.  

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 Parkway/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 began July 5, 2022. The estimated construction time is 26 months.
