Northwest Highway and W. Lawther Intersection To Close

Text size: A A

Work continues on the $32-million one-mi project to raise Northwest Highway six to eight ft to reduce flooding issues in the area. Construction began in November 2009 and is slated for an April 2012 completion.

TxDOT and the city of Dallas partnered to include a special aesthetics package, with funding from the city and Dallas County for additional stonework, railing on a bike trail and allowance for hike and bike trails in TxDOT’s right-of-way.

Dallas-based Rebcon is re-constructing the Northwest Highway bridges as part of the project. A roadway at the intersection will be re-constructed to tie into Northwest Highway’s new elevation, which is approximately six ft higher than the existing elevation. The closure of this intersection will be in place for approximately 18 months.
