Crews are installing a roundabout at the intersection of Bonnie Brae Street and Scripture Street. Also included are associated drainage improvements and water and wastewater relocations. The work zone will extend slightly beyond the intersection along Bonnie Brae (north and south), and along Scripture (east and west). During construction, the intersection will be fully closed, as necessitated by the significant lowering of the road.
To accommodate mobility needs, Bonnie Brae Street is being expanded from a two-lane undivided road to a four-lane divided road. Phase 1 includes widening Bonnie Brae from Roselawn to Vintage, which is currently under construction and should wrap up by late summer 2019. Phase 2 of the project includes expanding Vintage Boulevard from two lanes to a six-lane undivided roadway from I35W to US 377 and will begin in late summer/early fall 2019.
Beginning, Thursday, June 20, crews will begin milling the asphalt and removing curbs at the intersection of N. Bonnie Brae Street and Scripture Street. To ensure our crews, residents, and community members remain safe, barricades are in place to block traffic and pedestrian access through the construction area. Motorists are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the detour routes to minimize potential impacts on travel schedules and commutes throughout the City, and reminded to not remove or drive around the construction barricades. This creates a dangerous situation for all drivers on the road in the area. We thank you for your patience and will provide continued updates as the project progresses.
Construction progresses this week as crews will be removing trees in the area, milling off asphalt on the roadway, and continuing utility work to prepare for the next phase of improvements. Motorists are reminded to use caution in the area and adhere to all posted construction signage. Detour information is provided here
