The road improvement project will stretch an estimated 1.12 miles from Henrietta Creek Road north of Byron Nelson Boulevard to James Street. The project will include reconstruction and widening of Hwy. 377 from a two-lane rural road to a four-lane, divided roadway with raised medians and sidewalks, according to TxDOT.
The estimated $33.7 million project is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2023.
According to TxDOT, the project will implement additional left-turn lanes and traffic signals at a number of intersections within the project limits. A new railroad bridge and retaining walls will also be constructed at the Hwy. 377 and Byron Nelson Boulevard intersection.
TxDOT officials are expected to install message boards within project limits to notify Roanoke and area residents of upcoming construction.
