 Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) - US Hwy 67 Widening
The design and construction of this project is being managed by Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). 

Project Limits - TxDOT graphic

Construction began in September 2017 on the widening of US 67, from Belt Line Road to IH-20, to provide congestion relief and operations improvements to the US 67 corridor. The six-mile project includes widening of the existing 4-lane roadway to a 6-lane roadway and the installation of Texas U-turns at FM 1382 and at Belt Line Road. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2019.

US 67 Overnight Ramp and Main Lane Closures

Various overnight ramp and main lane closures may occur between September 2017 and January 20118 for striping and setting traffic barriers along US 67. These temporary closures are generally scheduled between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. During this time period all traffic lanes and entrance and exit ramps are anticipated to be open during normal daylight hours.

 
 Mansfield Road Improvements
This project has been designed and will be constructed in partnership with Dallas County in coordination with: Texas Parks and Wildlife, US Army Corps of Engineers, City of Grand Prairie, City of Mansfield, and City of Midlothian. The design development has also benefitted from extensive citizen involvement and review. This project, Mansfield Road between Belt Line Road and Anderson Drive, is part of approximately 12.2 mile roadway system which connects State Highway 161 (at I-20) to US Highway 67. The project section of this roadway system is the only portion which is not four (4) lanes wide.

The project scope includes the widening of Mansfield Road from two (2) lanes to a 4-lane divided arterial roadway, from approximately 600 feet west of the intersection of Belt Line Road to the western city limit (just west of Anderson Drive). The project includes replacement/upgrading of water mains, sewer mains, and the installation of underground storm drainage improvements.

The construction contract was awarded by Cedar Hill City Council to Tiseo Paving Company, Inc. as the prime contractor for the construction of these improvements. 

In August 2015, Oncor Electric began relocating utility poles along Mansfield Road. AT&T is still working on relocation efforts following the completion of the Oncor's utility work.

The Mansfield Road Improvements Project also included and completed localized street failure repairs on Lakeview Drive, between Lake Ridge Parkway and Mansfield Road.

What will be the improvements to Mansfield Road once construction is complete?
  • The existing two-lane asphalt Mansfield Road will be replaced with a four-lane (two in each direction) divided roadway. Bike lanes will be included in both directions. There will be a raised median separating eastbound and westbound traffic. The median will be landscaped and lined with new street lights.
  • A bridge will be contructed over Baggett Branch Stream replacing the existing concrete box culvert crossing.
  • A six (6) foot wide concrete sidewalk will be constructed on the south side of Mansfield Road.
  • A twelve (12) foot wide concrete trail will be constructed on the north side of Mansfield Road. For additional information regarding the plans for bike lanes and trails throughout the City, please review the Parks Hike and Bike Trails Master Plan. Final construction plans for the project are ongoing. 
  • The intersections of Mansfield Road and Lake Ridge Parkway, and Mansfield Road and Lakeview Drive, will each be a traffic signal controlled intersection.

West FM 1382 Improvements - Intersection Improvements

Construction for this project will be managed by TxDOT:


Willie Bolden, Project Manager
Texas Department of Transportation
214.319.3585

The project scope includes:
  1. Constructing a left turn lane and median opening for west bound FM 1382 traffic to enter into the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center.
  2. A traffic signal light will be installed at the entrance of Cedar Hill State Park.
  3. A hike and bike trail will be installed on the south side of FM 1382 connecting the sidewalk at New Clark Road to the entrance road to Cedar Hill State Park.
  4. The highway median is being narrowed on the eastbound side of FM 1382 in the area of Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center and the Newman International Academy at Cedar Hill (NICH), formerly Northwood University.  Through traffic will be shifted towards the median which will effectively create the space for a deceleration/acceleration lane for the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center and Newman International Academy at Cedar Hill.
This project was advertised and awarded, and construction began March 2017. The roadway construction is anticipated to be complete in the winter of 2017/2018.
