Project status 



Construction is progressing and crews are actively completing work on the median, sidewalks, parkway, and driveways. Vehicular traffic is now on the newly constructed lanes in both directions. The project is in the final phase of construction and is expected to be substantially complete by the end of February 2020.

Project Background

As Denton has grown over the years, so has the congestion on Mayhill Road. The City has been working to expand Mayhill from a two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway to accommodate traffic. Construction will continue throughout 2019, and is planned for completion in spring 2020. Once complete, Mayhill Road will be able to handle the continued growth in the area and serve as an alternate route to Loop 288.

Project Updates

February 13: Northbound traffic on Mayhill Road from north of Mckinney Street to US 380 is now on the newly paved lanes, making one lane of traffic open at all times in each direction. The innermost northbound and southbound lane intermittent closures will continue to allow crews to safely continue work in the median and driveways.
 
During the shift, the traffic signals were in flash mode at the Mayhill Road and Russell Newman Boulevard and Mayhill Road at Mills Road intersections. The traffic signals will transition to the red-yellow-green format once the traffic shift and barricade removal is completed. Following the traffic shift, Blagg Road is also be reopened to traffic.  
 
Crews will continue pavement marking, striping, signage, and median improvements as part of the Mayhill Road project. The project is in the final phase of construction and is expected to be substantially complete by the end of month.
