The existing six-lane section road will be reconstructed as a four-lane section from Skyline Drive to Forney Road and the section from Forney Road to U.S. 80 will be reconstructed as a six-lane section. The newly paved roadway will have new thick concrete pavement sections to support the large volume of heavy truck traffic. This project will also include improvements to underground utilities and drainage along the length of the project. The four-lane section south of Forney Road will be shifted to reduce the impacts of the industrial traffic on residents living in the nearby neighborhood. This shift will also allow for the addition of a walking/biking trail and an eight-foot screening wall for the nearby neighborhood.
