The City of Irving is actively working to enhance transportation infrastructure with ongoing improvements to major roads. Residents will soon experience smoother travel on MacArthur Boulevard as the city nears completion of a $4.8 million project, spanning from State Highway 114 to Byron Nelson Way.
This initiative is part of Year 6 in the Road to the Future program, demonstrating the city's commitment to enhancing its road network. The MacArthur Boulevard project is integral to the city's broader $27.9 million Capital Improvement Program, addressing vital aspects such as drainage, water system infrastructure, and overall street quality.
With construction initiated in January, the MacArthur Boulevard project encompasses a 2.17-mile stretch, focusing on upgrading roads between SH 114 and Byron Nelson Way. Notable improvements include milling and overlay techniques, enhancing subgrade conditions for a smoother driving experience. The project also incorporates the installation of updated accessibility ramps and repairs to sidewalk sections.
Simultaneously, Phase II of the broader MacArthur Boulevard Capital Improvement Program, extending from Metker Road to Northgate Drive, commenced in November and is anticipated to continue until February 2025.
Looking forward, the City of Irving has ambitious plans for Year 7 of the Road to the Future program. Among the upcoming projects is the construction on Walnut Hill Lane, extending from MacArthur Boulevard west to Gateway Drive. Additionally, Walton Boulevard, spanning from Ranch Trail to Market Place Boulevard, is slated for significant road construction, further contributing to the city's comprehensive infrastructure enhancements.
