Southlake tracks progress of Kirkwood Branch Bridge replacement

Crews have been busy installing parts of the new storm drain and water line for the Kirkwood Branch Bridge replacement project in Southlake.

The details

Work began in July on the project, which will raise the elevation of the roadway and construct a pedestrian pathway on the west side, according to city documents. The project’s scope also includes roadway, bridge, sidewalk and water line improvements.

Crews have removed the previous crossing marks at the bridge, which enables the use of structures crews have implemented to enhance stormwater and drainage management.

The $6.9 million project is expected to be completed over 18 months. It is funded by the city’s capital improvement program.

Work to begin on Jackson Road Bridge in Colleyville

The Texas Department of Transportation is undertaking a new road project in Colleyville.

Crews will reconstruct Jackson Road Bridge crossing over Little Bear Creek to widen the travel lanes to 12 feet, provide new 4-foot shoulders and include 5-foot sidewalks on both sides of the bridge.

The $1.75 million project will require the complete closure of the roadway at the creek crossing. Work is expected to start in January and end by late summer 2024.
