Lane closures on Woodall Rogers
Lane Closures on Woodall Rodgers Freeway Frontage Roads
Construction of the
Deck Park continues
DALLAS – The contractor, Archer Western, contracted by The Texas Department of Transportation to construct the Woodall Rodgers Deck Park, will be closing the westbound frontage road of Woodall Rodge
rs nightly between St. Paul and Pearl
Street from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning March 31 and continuing through
April 11. This closure and detour is necessary for the
of a power/communication line duct bank across the frontage road to
deliver power to the Woodall Rodgers Park.
Detour signage will be in place
and westbound travelers on the Woodall Rodgers Frontage Road will be
detoured as follows:
Right onto Olive Street, then
left onto McKinney Avenue and then left onto St. Paul where they can
turn right back onto the westbound frontage road.
TxDOT strives to minimize the
impact of these closures to area motorists and coordination with the
Dallas Arts District events is ongoing throughout the project.
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
Act and is scheduled to be completed in early 2012.
