Excavation on both the north and south sides of I-30 will be seen early in 2018.

Construction of a new roadway that connects Hemphill Street to Lamar Street on the south end of the central business district is in full swing.

Excavation is underway just south of the Lamar Street and Lancaster Avenue intersection, and it is expected to continue on both the north and south ends of the project until early next year.

Construction of temporary railroad tracks has also started. After utilities have been relocated, the railroad tracks can be completed.

Residents should start to see tunnel walls placed by late January 2018.

The two-phase construction process is slated to be finished in early 2020.

Total cost of the project is $53 million with the city contributing $26.6 million. The remaining funding will come from the North Central Texas Council of Governments, the Texas Department of Transportation and Tarrant County.

To learn more about the project, contact Project Manager Michael Weiss at 817-392-8485.
