Irving: Investing in Our Future

MacArthur Boulevard Reconstruction Project to Begin in Early 2023

Looking north along MacArthur Boulevard, at Northgate Drive.

Irving residents will soon see orange cones as they drive along MacArthur Boulevard. Beginning in January 2023, the City of Irving Capital Improvement Program (CIP) will launch a two-year project that runs from Metker Street to Byron Nelson Way.

On Sept. 1, the Irving City Council approved the $27,967,633 project along MacArthur Boulevard. The goals of the project are to improve drainage, water system infrastructure and quality of streets. The project scope includes:

  • New storm drainage installation from Metker Street to Hadrian Street.
  • New wastewater main installation from Metker Street to Murl Drive and from Jeffrey Trail to South Coker Street.
  • New water main installation from Rochelle Road to Northgate Drive and from Northgate Drive to Cottonwood Valley Drive. 

Irving Road to the Future - $200 Million in 10 YearsCrews will begin work during the first quarter of 2023 on MacArthur Boulevard Segment 1, which runs from Northgate Drive to Byron Nelson Way. The project includes new storm drainage installation along the southeast corner of MacArthur Boulevard and Northgate Drive, as well as a new water main from Northgate Drive to Cottonwood Valley Drive. 

Additionally, the Traffic and Transportation Department’s Streets Division will be improving MacArthur Boulevard from Byron Nelson Way north to State Highway 114 as part of Year 6 of the Road to the Future Program. This $5.5 million project will lead off by repairing and replacing various concrete panels, sidewalks and intersection pedestrian ramps, as well as adjusting some median noses at critical intersections along the roadway. In addition, crews will be adding a right turn lane into Singley Academy. 

Improvements are scheduled to commence in December and should be finished by the summer of 2023. Once this work is complete, this section of MacArthur Boulevard will undergo a process to mill or remove all of the old asphalt, and then resurface the roadway with new asphalt. Among the many benefits are not only a repaired roadway subgrade, but a smoother ride and new pavement markings for vehicles and pedestrians at intersections. 

During construction, one lane each way will be in place for northbound and southbound traffic; however, residents are encouraged to seek alternate routes when possible.
