The 2019 Bond Program provides funding for the widening of approximately one mile of Hickory Creek Road from Riverpass Drive to Farm to Market Road (FM) 1830 (Country Club Road) to four lanes. The project includes the realignment of Hickory Creek Road at the Hickory Creek crossing from its current curved configuration to a linear path that takes the road directly across the creek and associated flood plain.
This project is part of a larger reconstruction and widening project for Hickory Creek Road with the goal of a continuous four lane divided road along Hickory Creek Road from FM 2499 to FM 1830. The widening of Hickory Creek from Riverpass Drive to FM 2499 is currently under design and construction.
The project funding takes into account the construction of several bridges which will span flood prone areas. The funding amount is an engineering estimate of City of Denton costs at project completion.
The expansion of Hickory Creek Road is anticipated to reduce traffic congestion. The realignment of the road as it intersects FM 1830 is expected to improve the line of sight for motorists and eliminate the curved portions of the road.
