Improvement takes time. The community should plan for construction to last over four years.
The Mobility Authority and the entire project team are committed to being a good neighbor to residents along the 183 North corridor. While constructing a project of this size will include some temporary lane closures, we want to minimize the inconvenience as much as possible.
To finish the project on schedule, construction may occur 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week. However, in interest of the public and maximizing mobility during construction, the contractor will face financial penalties imposed by the Mobility Authority if a lane closure occurs outside of approved time frames, such as in peak travel times like daytime a.m. and p.m. rush hour. In order to minimize noise from construction activities, the project team will follow a set of guidelines designed to preserve quality of life for adjacent neighborhoods.
Our intention is for the majority of traffic-impacting activities to occur during the following off-peak times, whenever possible:
- Sunday Morning: 12:00 Midnight to 8:00 AM
- Sunday Evening: 9:00 PM to 12:00 Midnight
- Monday-Friday Morning: 12:00 Midnight to 5:00 AM
- Monday-Friday Evening: 9:00 PM to 12:00 Midnight
- Saturday Morning: 12:00 Midnight to 8:00 AM
- Saturday Evening: 9:00 PM to 12:00 Midnight
In most cases, daytime work will be focused on construction activities outside the immediate roadway. While it is our goal to limit lane reductions as much as possible, frontage road lane reductions may occur for an extended period of time for crews to construct the non-tolled general-purpose lanes. In most circumstances, work occurring on holidays or during special local events will be limited to activities that do not impact traffic. Lane closures on major holidays or during local events that draw large crowds to the city will be avoided when possible and will require special permission by the Mobility Authority and TxDOT.
Safety is our priority and incident response will be addressed expeditiously, with assistance from public safety officials as needed. During temporary closures that are anticipated to have a significant impact or cause extended travel time delays, law enforcement officers will be present.
