As the City of Irving launches the $27,967,633 MacArthur Boulevard Reconstruction Project this month, the Capital Improvement Program is preparing for the Embassy Channel Improvements Project to begin in February.
The two-year, $15,196,366 project will improve the storm drain system capacity of MacArthur Boulevard, reduce the 100-year floodplain limit, and protect about 273 residential and commercial structures.
As part of the improvement project, crews will lower the channel 5 feet and construct bridges at Weathered Street and Rochelle Road, as well as modular block walls to match the aesthetics of the downstream Embassy Channel improvements. Additionally, large storm boxes will be installed under the pavement along Rochelle Road from Embassy Channel to MacArthur Boulevard.
The project, which is part of the Drainage Solutions for a Better Tomorrow initiative, is slated for completion in 2025, weather permitting.
