Work on Zena Rucker road has been quietly making progress. Contractors have been on-site pouring concrete and installing rebar for the new sidewalk located on the southside of the roundabout, and new landscaping is also in the works.
Once completed, Zena Rucker Road will connect Matthews Court and Tower Boulevard, with the public artwork display, “Mockingbird Tree,” installed at the Zena Rucker Road and Tower Boulevard roundabout. The final result will provide east-west connectivity from Byron Nelson Parkway to South Carroll Avenue.
The estimated project cost is $2.1 million.
With the project estimated to be completed by Summer 2020, weather permitting, the City can add this to the list of completed projects within its Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP is in place to support the purchase, construction, or replacement of the City’s physical assets. Examples include projects like the Zena Rucker roundabout and roadway extension.
