Two Keller roads will soon have a smoother drive.

The Tarrant County Commissioners Court approved an interlocal agreement with the city of Keller April 16 to rehabilitate and resurface Bear Creek Parkway and Spring Branch Drive.

Bear Creek’s project will span from Whitley Road to Rufe Snow Drive, and Spring Branch will go from Oak Valley Drive to the cul-de-sac at the other end of the street.

A closer look

Per the agreement, the county will provide the labor and equipment to assist the city with the project, while the city will pay for the costs of materials and be billed directly by the material supplier. The agreement is scheduled to terminate at the end of September or on the date the project is completed, whichever comes first, according to documents.

The approach

Crews will reconstruct the road by pulverizing the existing asphalt pavement and mixing it into the road base to create a stronger product that has a longer life, said Rachel Reynolds, communication and public engagement manager for the city of Keller. Crews will then construct a new asphalt pavement surface over the improved existing road base.

Reynolds said the estimated cost of the project for Bear Creek Parkway is $655,000 and $50,000 for Spring Branch.
