What to Expect
Learn more about what to expect during construction.
The community should plan for construction impacts to last about five years. Colorado River Constructors (CRC) has divided the Oak Hill Parkway project into four segments, as seen above. While activity will occur throughout the entire corridor simultaneously, heavy construction in each segment will begin as noted in the timeline below.
Project timeline (subject to change):
- July 1, 2021: Groundbreaking ceremony
- Late 2021:
- Begin major activity on US 290 beginning at the US 290 West and US 290 East segments
- Begin major activity beginning at the US 290/SH 71 “Y” interchange segment
- Mid-2022: Begin major activity beginning on SH 71
- 2026: Open to traffic
Construction projects can be disruptive, and we will do our best to be a good neighbor.
The Oak Hill community should expect crews working in the corridor 24/7, including weekends, days, and nights. This reduces the project schedule to a shorter duration. Night work allows for fewer daytime traffic impacts.
Neighbors and businesses should also expect:
- Travel delays
- Lane shifts, closures and detours
- Temporary cross street closures
- An increase in noise, vibration, dust and lighting, including during night work
- An increase in traffic on the frontage roads and neighborhood streets
- Adjustments to business access
- Shifts in the schedule of activities
- Minor changes to the project design
- Temporary water/power disruptions
TxDOT and CRC will make every effort to be good neighbors and keep you informed of disruptive work. We welcome you to sign up for updates by clicking here.
