Finley Road from North Story East to Stafford, needs a complete resurfacing. I drive it all the time and it is literally falling apart. Full of ridges and pavement settling from an old street cut for sewer line repairs years ago.
Thank you for your question regarding the maintenance of Finley rd. Unfortunately at this time that road is not on a repair list, but the Transportation department has been notified. The department stated that the road will be assessed for repairs and if needed placed on a list for maintenance in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any further questions. Have a good week.
The City of Irving adopted the PUD #6 which sets the standards for the former stadium site as well as the area surrounding. The PUD #6 area includes more than 400 acres of developable land. It is the desire for the City to see the area developed into a prime mixed-use development to include major offices, residential, and retail options.
Currently, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is leasing the city-owned former stadium site as staging for the planned reconstruction of SH 183, SH 114 and Loop 12. All three highways surround the former stadium site and are extremely important for the development of PUD#6.
Please visit the City’s website for more information on the former stadium site: https://www.cityofirving.org/3032/Former-Stadium-Site. Here you can find both a copy of the PUD #6 Regulations and the Preliminary Project and Financing Plan (TIRZ #6) plan.
