Current Projects

TxDOT will close the intersection of FM 551 at SH 66 during the week of August 27, 2018 to add turn lanes at FM 551 and SH 66, railroad re-planking, installation of new signals and arms at the crossing. The intersection improvements are expected to take 4 to 5 weeks weather permitting.

Blackland Road Asphalt Repair
There will be various small repairs to the existing asphalt roadway from I30 to Greenbriar Road. The repairs will not cause the roadway to be shut down. Residents should expect minor delays and follow flag men onsite. This construction will occur end of May 2018 to July 2018.

Blackland Road Concrete Panel Repairs
The existing concrete sections of Blackland Road from Northview to the Greenbriar intersection will be removed and replaced. During this section, the section of Blackland Road from Northview Drive to Greenbriar. Traffic may take a detour route through Chamberlain Reserve (North Churchill Drive) and/or Melody Ranch. Detour signs will be installed to direct traffic. This construction will occur from June 2018 to September 2018.

Blackland Road Reconstruction
Blackland Road from Greenbriar to approximately 700 feet north of Sun Valley Drive will be reconstructed from June 2018 to May 2019. Residents shall expect delays during this time frame. Two-way, one lane traffic is expected. Flaggers will be directing traffic during the day, while standard traffic control devices will be in place at night time. It is anticipated the top portion of the roadway (approximately 7”-8” of asphalt) will be removed. The existing subgrade/clay soils under the roadway will be treated to provide for a hard, compacted surface under the future roadway. Once the subgrade is complete, the asphalt will be placed on the surface. New pavement markings will be installed once the roadway is complete. In addition to the paving improvements, drainage improvements consisting of the removal and replacement of the driveway culverts along the roadway will occur. This will not disrupt the traffic along Blackland Road, however, the contractor will be coordinating with the residents living directly on Blackland Road regarding access to their homes.
