Project Status

Project Background

Several reconstruction projects are planned to maintain the overall health of our transportation and utility infrastructure network. The 2019 Streets Reconstruction Project will include reconstruction of the following four roadways:
  • Windsor Drive, from N. Locust Street to east of Old North Road
  • Scripture Street from Thomas Street to Jagoe Street
  • Thomas Street from Panhandle Street to Oak Street
  • Hercules Lane from N. Locust Street to Sherman Drive
The Windsor segment is adjacent to two DISD schools (Strickland Middle and Wilson Elementary School). Adjacent street reconstruction activities will be phased to occur during summer months to minimize disruption to school.

Project Background

November 13: The City’s contractor, Quality Excavation, LLC, is actively completing construction on Windsor Drive from Stuart Road to Longfellow Lane and from Hanover Drive to Branch Crossing. There was a recent pause in project activity as a result of City staff working with the contractor to address site cleanliness and safety concerns. The issues have been addressed and work resumed on Friday, Nov. 13. For the duration of the project, the project extents of Windsor Drive will have a temporary westbound lane closure in place to allow crews to safely complete the installation of utilities and street reconstruction. Weather conditions and contractor scheduling may impact the plans, but the lanes are expected to be reopened to traffic and parking on or before Monday, Aug. 23, 2021.
