Irving’s “Road to the Future: $100 Million in 5 Years” program is currently in its fifth year with city leaders planning the next phase of the ambitious, cross-departmental program.

Launched in 2017, the Road to the Future Program has been an ongoing effort to rehabilitate, reconstruct and proactively maintain 1,440 lane-miles of Irving’s streets. The project is a collaborative effort between the Capital Improvement Program, Traffic and Transportation, and Water Utilities departments to reconstruct and rehabilitate sidewalks, curbs and gutters; to replace pavement, water and wastewater mains and lines; and to repave neighborhood streets and corridors.

City leadership is looking toward the next phase of the project, which will run from 2023 to 2027. Several major construction projects throughout Irving are included in the list. The first is Esters Road, which is currently in the early design stage from State Highway 183 to Rochelle Road. Construction on Esters is expected to begin in fiscal year 2024. Additionally, the city will begin design work on three segments of Valley View Lane from Rochelle Road to just past Belt Line Road. Also included in this design work will be Rochelle Road from Valley View Lane to Andalusia Street including a new bridge over Estelle Creek.
