Irving: Investing in Our Future

Posted on: December 1, 2023

Construction Progress Continues Along MacArthur Boulevard

Workers operate a trenching machine along MacArthur Boulevard.

In Irving, two roads extend north and south through the entire city: Belt Line Road and MacArthur Boulevard. The city continues to make major improvements to Belt Line Road and now, MacArthur Boulevard will soon see fewer orange cones and more traffic flow.

The City of Irving will soon complete part of the MacArthur Boulevard project, from State Highway 114 to Byron Nelson Way. The $4.8 million project, which started in January, is part of Year 6 of the city’s Road to the Future projects.

The Traffic and Transportation project complements the city’s current $27.9 million MacArthur Boulevard Capital Improvement Program project, which runs from Byron Nelson Way south to Metker Street and improves drainage, water system infrastructure and the quality of streets. In November, construction began on Phase II of the project from Metker Road to Northgate Drive. Phase II is expected to run through February 2025.   

The 2.17-mile project on MacArthur between SH 114 and Byron Nelson also includes improvements to Byron Nelson from Leland Boulevard to MacArthur Boulevard. The project involved milling and overlay, as well as improved subgrade of roads for a better driving experience for commuters. The project also included adding updated accessibility ramps and repairing sections of sidewalks in the area.

The City of Irving has big plans for Year 7 of the Road to the Future program, including construction on Walnut Hill Lane from MacArthur Boulevard west to Gateway Drive. Additionally, Walton Boulevard between Ranch Trail and Market Place Boulevard is planned as the next major road construction project.
