Silver Creek Road Improvements- From Brewer HS to City Limit- Fort Worth, Texas​

Silver Creek Road is an arterial serving Brewer High School and a rather large developing area in North West Fort Worth. The project included approximately 2.6 miles of Roadway Realignment/Reconstruction with extensive drainage improvements and water line relocation/adjustments in an industrial and residential setting. The project also included the design of a Roundabout where the future Academy Boulevard (another major arterial in NW Fort Worth) will tie into Silver Creek Road. Silver Creek Material Company is located along this stretch of Silver Creek Road, which generates a high volume of heavy truck traffic. Auxiliary lanes were added to accommodate the necessary turning movements for the truck traffic to and from the site safely. Other challenges were designing a portion of this roadway that was within the designated flood plain and also the development of a Traffic Control Plan to accommodate the traffic during the construction since there were no viable detour options to close the road during construction. All design was accomplished by complying with the City of Fort Worth Design Criteria Manual.
