Roadway, Water, and Construction Projects

May 16, 2019

Stinson Road Update – The following culverts are planned for construction on the following days:

  • Alley culvert between Parker Road and Shiloh Drive (Sta 4+50). No date set.
  • 1755 Stinson Road driveway culvert (Sta 13+75) on May 22.
  • 1745 Stinson Road southern driveway culvert (Sta 15+50) on May 23.
  • 1745 Stinson Road northern driveway culvert (Sta 16+50) on May 24.
  • 1500 Stinson Road driveway culvert (Sta 39+00). No date set.
  • 1475 Stinson Road driveway culvert (Sta 41+50). No date set.
  • The contractor is planning to close Stinson Road to all traffic between Belvedere Park Lane and the driveway to 1475 Stinson Road for culvert construction the week of May 28 to May 31.  The exact date(s) has not been determined due to the rain.

The one-way southbound only traffic is planned to start on May 28, 2019. The milling of the exiting southbound lane is planned for May 30 and 31.  The schedule provided is based on weather permitting. Should we experience rain the contractor may request to work Saturday's to make up for weather delays.

Blondy Jhune Road Update – The contractor plans to start paving the new southern half of Blondy Jhune Road tomorrow from 7 AM to 7 PM (Friday, May 17, 2019).  Given that the space within the construction zone is very tight, the trucks delivering the concrete to the paving machine will need to sit in the open, westbound lane of Blondy Jhune Road and block traffic.  To off-load each truck, the truck must remain next to the paving machine for 10 to 15 minutes.  There will also be a five-minute setup each time to position the truck next to the paving machine before off-loading can begin.  Only one truck will be allowed to deliver concrete to the paving machine at a time.  So, expect delays of 15 to 20 minutes depending on when and where you might encounter a concrete truck in the process of off-loading.

This activity is very disruptive and causes a great deal of inconvenience.  Please plan accordingly.  Departures and arrivals to and from your home might take 20 minutes longer than normal.

The following is a lookahead schedule:

  • Roadway Excavation and Lime Operations – May 14 through May 24.
  • Setup for Paving Operations – May 14 through May 24.
  • Southern Half Paving Operations – May 17 through May 31.

FM 1378 is known as Country Club Road, W. Lucas Road, and Southview Drive in Lucas.  TxDOT is planning to let a project in mid 2019 with three main objectives: 1) add narrow shoulders to FM 1378, 2) improve drainage, and 3) resurface the main lanes with high-friction asphalt.  When TxDOT widened the White Rock Creek bridge just south of Forest Grove Road on FM 1378, these three objectives were accomplished north of the bridge.  This new project is six miles long from the White Rock Creek Bridge to Parker Road.  Preliminary engineering and surveying are under way for this project.
