Traffic Switched for Construction Monday

Starting Monday, Feb. 12, weather permitting

 

Where:

State Highway 26 from Centerpark Drive to Main Street in Colleyville

COLLEYVILLE – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will begin shifting traffic on SH 26 from Centerpark Drive to Main Street Monday, Feb. 12. for construction, weather permitting. North and southbound motorists will be shifted to the outside lanes to allow construction on the inside lanes of SH 26.  During the traffic shift, signalized intersections will be closed for approximately a day to allow for the building of temporary crossovers, during which mainlanes on SH 26 will remain open. Temporary median openings will also be installed in the area.

After this initial traffic shift, additional segments of SH 26 will continue to be shifted to allow construction of the middle lanes from Main Street to John McCain Road. Before each area is transitioned, message boards will be posted to alert motorists of the upcoming switch. The segments to be shifted are:

  • Centerpark Drive to Main Street – beginning Feb. 12, weather permitting
  • Main Street to Hall Johnson Road
  • Hall Johnson Road to Tinker Road
  • Tinker Road to John McCain Road

Switches will occur from south to north and will take approximately one month to transition the entire construction area.

During the majority of construction, two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction. Lane closures will be during off-peak travel times to minimize impact to motorists. The $38.2 million is estimated for completion in 2019, and the project includes financial incentives for early completion.
