As with any construction project, there are always roadblocks and unforeseen delays that change timelines and schedules. Work on Zena Rucker Road has remained on schedule despite unpredictable weather conditions and changes in the work due to social distancing guidelines.
The project was approved by City Council in August 2019 with the purpose to improve mobility along Bryon Nelson Parkway and South Carroll Avenue.
Currently, contractors are drilling holes to insert light posts and work on irrigation is nearing completion.
The roundabout connector located at the intersection of Zena Rucker Road and Tower Boulevard is in the final stages. The City’s Community Services Department is working with contractors to begin installing the roundabout landscaping and artwork display, “Mockingbird Tree” by Michael Warrick.
The estimated project cost is $2.1 million and is estimated to be complete summer 2020, weather permitting.
