Road closures continue in the city of Roanoke as part of a Texas Department of Transportation project to improve portions of Hwy. 377.
According to city officials, Business 114 or Byron Nelson Boulevard will be closed 9 p.m.-5 a.m. Aug. 11-14 and Aug. 17. TxDOT crews will provide signage that will indicate detour routes in the area.
“If you need to travel this route during these times next week, please find an alternate route or allow extra time,” city spokesperson Morgan Roundy said.
The Hwy. 377 project will improve a total of 1.12 miles of roadway from Henrietta Creek Road north of Byron Nelson to James Street. A new railroad bridge and retaining walls will also be constructed at the Hwy. 377 and Byron Nelson Boulevard intersection.
“We are doing some work on the bridges where Hwy. 377 crosses [Business] 114, and it’s really the only way we can get our equipment to the bridges,” TxDOT engineer Gary Caldwell said.
The overall 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, officials said. The project will also implement additional left-turn lanes and traffic signals at a number of intersections within the project limits.
The estimated $33.7 million project is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2023.
