Work on N. White Chapel is progressing and still on track.
Storm drainage infrastructure construction for east and west Chapel Downs continues. Work on the storm drainage improvements under N. White Chapel are set to take place along the southbound lane as soon as the temporary road construction is complete to support shifting traffic off of the existing southbound lane.
Recently, contractors have been working to install the road base to support the temporary road construction along the east side of N. White Chapel. Temporary asphalt will begin to be laid on this road base soon and this will allow us to shift both lanes of traffic east and open up the existing southbound lane for demolition and the installation of the storm drainage improvements in this area. The temporary road construction was designed to allow ample room to maintain the turn lanes and existing lane widths throughout construction so that impacts to traffic can be minimized.
Construction of the retaining and screening walls will continue through the fall.
Construction for the N. White Chapel widening project is estimated to be completed by Spring 2022 for an estimated total cost of $17 million.
Although this Texas weather has a mind of its own and can have adverse effects on projects, work on N. White Chapel is on schedule.
Waterline work is ongoing at each of the N. White Chapel intersections from Emerald to Ascot. The anticipated completion date for this work will be February 14.
Street light installation is in the works along Highland to SH 114, weather permitting and will soon be followed by, median landscaping, the replacement screening wall on the East Side of N. White Chapel, along with sidewalks and a traffic signal at Ascot Drive.
This project is expected to be completed by spring 2022 with total estimated cost of $17 million for both projects.
