The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in partnership with the City of Benbrook, will soon begin the $19 million reconstruction of Benbrook Boulevard/U.S. 377 in Benbrook from I-20 to Winscott Road/Lakeway Drive. The 1.3-mile project, which will improve mobility and safety, will consist of widening Benbrook Boulevard/U.S. 377 from four to six lanes, the addition of raised curb medians with left turn bays, and the installation of curbs and gutters. After construction, the City of Benbrook will beautify the area with additional landscaping.
During the majority of construction, two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction. Daytime closures and multi-lane closures resulting from traffic switches will occasionally be necessary, but most of the construction will be behind barriers and major intersections will continue to have left turn lanes. Traffic flow and access to businesses along the corridor will be maintained during construction.
The project will be implemented in three phases, beginning with construction work at Sproles Drive to Mercedes Street. Completion of the Benbrook Boulevard/U.S. 377 project is expected to take approximately two years.
TxDOT appreciates the patience of motorists, and encourages attention to all warning signs within the construction work zone while crews work diligently to complete this project as quickly and as safely as possible. You can see all Texas road conditions by visiting: www.drivetexas.org.
