Traffic Alert: This Week’s Top Three Road Construction Projects In Kyle

Jonathan Cartu Reports Traffic Alert: This Week’s Top Three Road Construction…

Staff Report

Last week Kyle started the long-awaited reconstruction of Lehman Road. Kyle residents should be prepared for detours during the roadwork.

Please remember to support your local businesses as they are still open during construction.

Underground utilities will kickoff this reconstruction project, with an estimated project wrap up the timeline of 24 months and the closed portion of FM 150 to Masonwood to last several months.

However, inclement weather and other issues can affect the anticipated schedule throughout the entire project.

Motorists should be prepared for detours and closures during the construction period. The contractor is required to display signage in advance of traffic changes, lane shifts, detours and closures.

UPDATED December 26, 2019

Burleson St.: Began Construction September 2018 (approximately 24-month project)

**The roadway north of Schlemmer is not safe for walkers; as soon as it is we will notify the public.**

In related news, work continues moving north. Rodriguez is closed (temporarily) while the contractor performs work in that area. Follow traffic detour for access to James Adkins.

Spring Branch at Burleson is now closed. Traffic should detour to James Adkins or Silverado/150.

Burleson from Spring Branch to Marketplace (including James Adkins ) will close beginning on Dec. 13 (Union Pacific Railroad will coordinate their work on the RR crossing during that timeframe).

That section of roadway is expected to be closed for approximately 4 months. See this map for detours and please follow posted signs in the area.

Expect minor disruptions to traffic in the coming weeks may be needed as we still have some pending work (illumination, landscaping). We will use social media to communicate any issue/temporary closures if needed.

The estimated completion of the entire road is June 2020.

NOTE: All work planned work dates are estimates; weather and other issues can delay work.

Details about this project: This is a planned major reconstruction of the road and part of the 2013 road bond approved by Kyle voters.

The work involves moving utilities and adding turn lanes.

The overall project, which began Sept. 10, 2018, is anticipated to last a total of about 24 months.

**Note: as work moves north toward Marketplace, the contractor will set new detours. We will work to keep everyone updated.**

Lehman Rd.: Began Construction February 2019 (approximately 24-month project)

The section of Lehman Rd. from FM 150 to just past Lake Kyle Park was reopened on Dec. 23.

While work is not quite complete, it is drivable. The contractor will continue working north on Lehman toward Bunton Creek Rd.

As different sections of the road being worked on, we will notify the public of changes, detours, etc.

*Weather and other issues can impact or delay the start date for new closures, and for any work on the overall project.

ABOUT LAKE KYLE: Lake Kyle Park will remain closed to the public for several more months.

The City’s PARD folks are temporarily located at the house across from Old City Hall/Krug Activity Center at 104 S. Burleson St.

Details about this project: This is a planned major reconstruction of the road and part of the 2013 road bond approved by Kyle voters. The work involves moving utilities, fixing drainage and adding turn lanes. Estimated completion to Hiver street Intersection is January 2020.

Windy Hill Rd.:

A major reconstruction project on Windy Hill is coming in the near future. Read more about that project here.

Please remember to support your local businesses as they are still open during construction.
