Some current and upcoming roadwork projects include the addition of a right-turn lane on West Lake Highlands Drive, and the resurfacing of Witt Drive between Main Street and Knight Drive. All work is weather-permitting.
Witt Drive Resurfacing Project
Starting at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 2, contractors for the city will begin work on the pavement reconstruction of a portion of Witt Drive, which will resurface the roadway with new asphalt.
During the project, westbound traffic on Witt Drive will be closed at both the intersections of Witt Drive/Knight Drive and Witt Drive/Elm Street. Traffic on Knight Drive will be detoured to North Colony Boulevard for vehicles wanting to go eastbound to FM 423. Traffic will still be able to enter from Main Street to go eastbound on Witt Drive to the neighborhoods and businesses located to the east of Main Street. Southbound traffic on Elm Street will only be able to take a left turn at the intersection of Witt Drive and Elm Street because Witt Drive is one-way eastbound traffic.
At a cost of $1.2M, the Paving Reconstruction for Elm Street, Witt Drive and East Lake Highlands contract was approved by The Colony City Council on Oct. 18, 2022.
West Lake Highlands Turn Lane Project
Starting 9 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27, contractors for the city will begin work on the West Lake Highlands Turn Lane Project, which will add a new right-turn lane at the eastbound intersection of West Lake Highlands Drive and Main Street.
During the project, eastbound traffic on Lake Highlands will be closed at Main Street. Traffic will be detoured onto Lake Park Drive. Westbound traffic on Lake Highlands will still enter the neighborhood from Main Street.
We thank you for your patience, and please drive safe in construction zones! This work is part of the city's current Phase 12 Residential Street Reconstruction Project, which includes reconstruction of Alta Oaks Court, Ballard Trail, and Runyon Drive. At a cost of $3.5M, the Phase 12 contract was approved by The Colony City Council in December 2022.
