Road Reconfigurations Part of Woodall Rodgers Deck Project

Text size: A A

As part of the $44.5-million contract awarded to the Arlington office of Archer Wester to construct the deck and plaza over the Woodall Rodgers Freeway in Dallas, the westbound Woodall Rodgers exit to St. Paul Street in Dallas was opened to all traffic, except trucks, as part of a temporary configuration until further deck construction allows the contractor, to construct the permanent configuration.

The project starts west of St. Paul and extends .25 mi to east of Pearl Street. When complete a short tunnel will exist. The permanent configuration will provide adequate turning movement for trucks and is currently estimated to be open to traffic by spring. Current construction activities include building of the support structures, which will provide support for the deck. That part of the project is made up of box beams and trench panels. Box beams and trench panels were scheduled to be placed at press time.

The project is a partnership among several entities, including TxDOT and the city of Dallas as well as private sector partners and included $16.7 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The project is scheduled to complete in early 2012.
