Road Construction Updates
|Subscribe now for email updates on the city's major road construction projects.
The City of Irving works hard to minimize the disruption caused by road construction, and in doing so, wants to keep everyone apprised of construction projects, timelines and traffic flow. While we apologize for the traffic cones, we also know construction means new and improved infrastructure, as well as community growth. Growth brings in the tax revenue needed to continue offering quality services and maintain Irving resident taxes and fees that are among the lowest in North Texas.
Committed to keeping the community informed on capital improvement projects, residents can receive email updates on road construction projects affecting traffic by subscribing to the city’s listserv. Subscribe now for free email updates.
