DALLAS COUNTY – Weather permitting, work is kicking off on a construction project on US 67 to add capacity to the highway, as well as rebuild the ramps within the project limits. The project stretches from Beltline Road to Wheatland Road and runs through three cities; Cedar Hill, Duncanville and Dallas.
The first step begins next week when the contractor will begin setting work zone signs. Construction is expected to begin on Sept. 25. There will be both daytime and nighttime lane closures during off-peak traffic hours. Near the end of the project there will be on ramps and off ramps closed for more than a month at a time while they are being rebuilt. There will be several major traffic configuration changes and lane closures throughout the life of the project.
The new lane and ramps are expected to be open in the fall of 2019.
Flatiron Constructors Corp. is the prime contractor on the $59 million project.
