The City of Irving is expanding Jaycee Park pond and its dam.
The project is part of the Delaware Creek Drainage Improvements project between Cripple Creek Drive and State Highway 183. Excavation to make the pond wider has begun, and construction also is underway on new wastewater mains through Jaycee Park.
During the week of Dec. 2, the contractor will remove the pedestrian bridge in the park as part of making the pond wider. A new longer bridge will be installed after the widening of the pond is complete.
For safety, the area is secured from public access with fencing. Park patrons are advised to stay clear of fenced and barricaded areas. Full access to this portion of the park is expected at the completion of the project in December 2021.
Jaycee Park is located at 1975 Puritan Drive. This project is part of Phase 4 of the master-planned Delaware Creek Basin drainage channel improvement project.
