The City of Denton is currently making improvements to the underground drainage system near the intersection of Eagle Drive and Myrtle Street. Upcoming work will require the closure of Eagle Drive between Elm Street and Carroll Boulevard from Dec. 3, 2018 through May 31, 2019.
Detours will be available during the closure, but traffic delays are expected. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
The Eagle Drive Drainage Project will construct an underground drainage system to replace the current open channel system and includes street reconstruction of Eagle Drive from Elm Street to Carroll Boulevard. The new drainage system is designed to handle a 100-year storm event and will help reduce flooding in the area. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2019.
