Road Construction

Summer 2017 Construction

Updated July 7, 2017



It's that time of year again when the Town will begin work on its annual street maintenance. Typically, we try to do these projects in the summer because it does not disrupt traffic as badly when school is not in session. 

These projects began May 30, 2017 and are expected to be completed by the end of summer. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve the Town!

Project A – Eldorado Pkwy at FM 423


Replacement of various concrete panels.
Westbound – Increase from 2 lanes to 3 through lanes at FM 423.
Eastbound – Additional left turn lane.
Striping and pavement markings:
 - West of FM 423 will be per Town of Little Elm standards.
 - East of FM 423 will be per City of Frisco standards.
Currently: 
To facilitate the construction of Eldorado Parkway, the Town will be closing the westbound lanes of Eldorado Parkway from FM 423 to Walker Lane from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning Thursday, July 20, 2017. The closure will be in place each night through Wednesday, July 26, 2017. Drivers will be redirected to Little Elm Parkway while Eldorado Parkway is closed to traffic.


Project B – Witt Rd at Brent Elementary


Removal of left turn lane.
Light pole relocation.
Landscape and irrigation update.
Currently: 
No change.

Project C – Witt Rd at Eldorado Pkwy


Replacement of existing median with 8” thick stamped concrete.
Currently: 
No change.


Project D – Water Valve at Walker Ln


20” butterfly valve replacement.
Rework new pavement and barrier free ramp to drain to nearest inlet.
Currently:
The contractor has completed the 20” valve replacement at the intersection. In the next two weeks, the contractor will construct and install a new storm inlet in the northeast corner of the intersection to improve drainage. Once that is complete, the contractor will repair the stamped concrete and replace the concrete panels that were damaged as a result of the repair.

Project E – Woodlake Parkway


Replacement of various concrete panels.
Striping and signage at FM 423.
Valero driveway – One lane of access must be maintained at all times throughout construction.
Currently: 
The contractor has started pouring the concrete for “Phase 2” of the repair. This lane of traffic should be ready for traffic by the end of next week. After that section is complete, the contractor will begin work for “phase 3” of the Woodlake Parkway section. Phase 3 will reconstruct the 20 feet section in the middle of the roadway. Traffic will be diverted to the outside lanes will this reconstruction is happening. Drivers should pay careful attention to the barricades in this area. There is limited space for contractors to work and citizens to drive. Several drivers have driven into wet concrete and caused substantial damage to both the concrete and their cars. The contractor has been instructed to tighten barricades
