The City of Irving has initiated a downtown revitalization project to redesign a 1-mile section of Irving Boulevard that runs through the city’s historic Heritage Crossing District.
The preliminary design calls for a transformation that will help draw people and businesses to this quaint and beautiful part of town, with the goal of evolving Heritage Crossing into a destination location.
Current plans recommend reducing three vehicle lanes to two lanes along Irving Boulevard from Sowers Road to Strickland Plaza. The remaining right of way would be used for parallel parking, wider sidewalks, a bike lane and streetscape amenities. Parallel parking will be on both sides of the street. While construction is underway, the city will make additional improvements to the water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure along the road. This renovation project is one of many investments the city is making in the area. Read the Project Overview information sheet.
A second round of input sessions on the Irving Boulevard project will be scheduled during the intermediate design phase. Construction is slated to begin in 2021 and conclude in 2023.
