Ask the editor: Why is there construction along Willow Springs Road?


Work started June 3 to repave Willow Springs Road between Avondale Haslet Road and US 287 in northeast Fort Worth.

Phase one of the project, completed June 14, repaved Willow Springs between Avondale Haslet and Singleton Drive.

As of press time, phase two was set to begin June 17 and be completed July 5. Crews will repave Willow Springs between Singleton and US 287.

During construction, traffic on Willow Springs will be reduced to one lane from 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. When crews are working near the US 287 frontage road, all northbound traffic will be detoured to the Avondale Haslet exit.

To avoid delays, the city of Fort Worth is recommending drivers use Avondale Haslet.

The project is estimated to cost $683,392. Funding for the project will come from the city of Fort Worth and Tarrant County Precinct 3.
