360 South Project: Night Construction Begins

Articles 360 South 01-29-16

Nightly construction work on the SH 360 South Project will begin Monday, Feb. 1, 2016 at the Lynn Creek Parkway/Webb Lynn Road crossover. Construction crews will be working from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. each night between Feb. 1 and Friday, Feb. 19, with the exception of Saturday Feb. 6, and Saturday, Feb. 13.

Drivers traveling east on Webb Lynn Road and wishing to continue east on Lynn Creek Parkway, or north on the SH 360 frontage roads, will be detoured south to New York Avenue. At New York Avenue, drivers can take the already constructed U-turn. Each morning after work is complete, traffic will resume using the detours at Lynn Creek Parkway/Webb Lynn Road.

The night construction will be the initial phase of building the new crossover bridge at the Lynn Creek Parkway/Webb Lynn Road intersection. Construction of the bridge is expected to take six to nine months to complete.

Advance warning signs will be installed to let the traveling public know that the detour will be closed and to use New York Avenue as an alternate detour. In addition, temporary lighting will be in place for the safety of the construction crews.

About the SH 360 South Project
The SH 360 South Project is a $330 million design-build construction project in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) and the North Central Texas Council of Governments and local cities and counties to improve mobility, enhance safety and connect communities. Once complete, the toll road will be operated by NTTA.

Beginning in fall 2015, the 9.7-mile project will stretch from Green Oaks Boulevard to US 287. The project will provide through lanes that will improve mobility throughout the rapidly developing corridor in addition to improving traffic flow for local businesses and residents along the SH 360 frontage roads. Construction is anticipated to be complete in late 2017. Construction management for the design-build project is led by the Lane | Abrams Joint Venture.
