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 includes completing the north side of National Parkway west of Holland Road and several hundred feet to the east. It also includes a traffic signal at Holland Road and National Parkway and sidewalks along the roadway as well as a sidewalk along the east side to Elizabeth Smith Innovative Learning. 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. Construction began in October 2022 with various lane closures asphalt detours. Utility construction is currently underway including the installation of storm sewer and sanitary sewer lines. The sewer construction is estimated to be complete this month. Paving is expected to be complete in front of Elizabeth Smith Learning Center by the beginning of the school year. Paving for the remainder of the roadway is anticipated to begin soon after that. The project should be substantially complete in the fourth quarter of 2023.
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 city awarded the project for construction on Nov. 14, 2022. Water and sewer main replacements and storm drain installation are complete. Paving is underway. The project is anticipated to be completed in 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. 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 Boulevard and Seeton Road.
The city awarded the project for construction on July 10, with an anticipated construction start in September. The contract time for this project will be 300 working days or approximately 16 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 Street 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 the second quarter 2024.
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. Staff anticipates construction to begin in the fall 2023.
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 east side 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.
Cardinal Road Northbound Right Turn Lane at FM 1187 (Street Bond Fund)
This project will add a northbound right turn lane at FM 1187. Through movements are causing significant delays for right turning movements and congesting the intersection. A dedicated right turn lane will allow significant reduction in delays. The project will also include improving the traffic signal, median nose, and sidewalk ramps at the intersection.
Design has begun with construction anticipated to begin in the third quarter or fourth quarter of 2023.
West Broad Street (Near Retta Road and Lillian Road) (Street Bond Fund)
West Broad Street will be improved to a four-lane, divided concrete roadway from its current two-lane, asphalt rural section in this immediate area. This project will reconfigure the W. Broad Street intersections with both Retta Road and Lillian Road. Reconstructing these intersections will improve their safety.
Design has begun with construction anticipated to begin mid-2024.
Cannon Dr. South (Conifer Street to Miller Road) (Street Bond Fund)
This project will design and construct Cannon Drive South from Conifer Street south to Miller Road. Cannon Drive South is shown on the throughfare plan as a minor collector roadway with a 70’ right-of-way. This roadway is anticipated to include bicycle lanes and will provide a critical route for access and circulation given the new and anticipated developments between Cannon Drive South and State Highway 360. The existing pavement adjacent to the Rustic Meadow subdivision will be removed and replaced.
Design has begun with construction anticipated to begin the second quarter of 2024.
East Broad St. (Cannon Drive to Holland Road) (Street Bond Fund)
This project will provide improvements around the TX-360 intersection necessary to maximize vehicle throughput, especially eastbound to northbound movement. Creating dual-left turn lanes on the bridge and extending west is anticipated. Right-of-way acquisition at the southwest corner of the intersection will be considered if necessary. Limits may extend west to Cannon Drive and east to Holland Road to maximize vehicle throughput. This project will likely utilize asphalt pavement as is existing to the west. A traffic signal at Fire Station 3 will be included with this project.
Design is currently being contracted. Construction is anticipated to begin in mid-2024.
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.
Roadway construction began July 5, 2022. The estimated construction time is 26 months.
Walnut Creek Drive Bridge at Walnut Creek
This project will replace the existing bridge with a new four lane bridge including 6-foot sidewalks on each side. It is a federal bridge replacement program project administered by TxDOT.
The project was let in January 2023 and construction started in May. The bridge construction will take approximately 10 months. The linear trail will be temporarily relocated to the intersection of Magnolia/Rose Park entry during construction also traffic will be reduced to one-lane each direction.
Master Thoroughfare Plan
The Master Thoroughfare Plan is a long-range plan which identifies and documents the types and locations of roadway facilities within the City necessary to accommodate the anticipated future growth. It serves as a guide for all decision-making related to the City's transportation network. The plan was last amended in June 2023.
