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 installation 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 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.
