Construction of the Deck Park continues



– The contractor, Archer Western, contracted by The Texas Department of Transportation to construct the Woodall Rodgers Deck Park, will be closing various lanes of eastbound and westbound lanes on Woodall Rodgers nightly between Feb. 13 and March 14. 

These closures will generally begin at 9 p.m. and end by 6 a.m. from St. Paul to Pearl Street.   


Beginning Feb. 13 to March 14,  two left lanes of eastbound Woodall Rodgers will be closed nightly for the forming and placement of the center bent as well as the left lane of westbound Woodall Rodgers. 

These nightly closures will begin at 9 p.m. and end by 6 a.m. the following morning.   On Saturday’s the closure will begin at 6 a.m. and end at 9 p.m. and on Sunday the closure will begin at 6 a.m. and go through Monday morning at 5 a.m.  


Beginning Feb. 21 to March 14, nightly closures of right lane on westbound Woodall Rodgers will provide a buffer during wall demolition operations.  During this time the contractor will ensure that only one westbound lane will be closed at a time though it will vary to accommodate the specific work occurring at the time.


TxDOT strives to minimize the impact of these closures to area motorists and consideration has been given to the upcoming NBA All Star weekend events in the area.  We are coordinating with the American Airlines Center to allow additional time after the event for parking lots to clear before the closures begin.


Information on future construction activities will be posted on TxDOT’s website at www.txdot.gov in addition to postings on the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation website at www.theparkdallas.org under the mobility section. 


TxDOT awarded the $44.5 million dollar contract to Archer Western to construct the deck and plaza over Woodall Rodgers Freeway.  The project starts west of St. Paul and extends 1/4 mile to east of Pearl Street, and when complete, will create a short tunnel.   


This partnership project between TxDOT, the City of Dallas and the private sector included $16.7 million dollars of enhancement funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and is scheduled to be completed in early 2012. 


TxDOT asks motorists to drive carefully through the work zone and appreciates their patience during this unique and exciting project.
