Nov. 1, 2015 Update and Schedule
If you have not already, please consider signing up with Notify Me® to receive text and/or e-mail notifications regarding the Mansfield Road Project. Certain aspects of the construction will require traffic restrictions, and the City will utilize Notify Me® to provide advanced notifications of scheduled restrictions.

Late October rains, and related muddy constructions site, has limited some construction activities. Periodic rains are anticipated to continue.

During the month of November, weather permitting:

  • We will continue installing (dirt) fill and working on subgrade for the installation of temporary pavement on Mansfield Road between Lake Ridge Parkway and Lakeview Drive, on the south side of the roadway.  Once the subgrade preparation work is complete, temporary traffic lanes will be installed.  Placement of the pavement operation will require temporary Mansfield Road lane restrictions, which are anticipated to take place over several days, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.  Notify Me® advanced notifications will be sent prior to the restrictions.
  • An underground water main and underground sewer main will be installed crossing Lake Ridge Parkway, just south of the Mansfield Road intersection.  This construction will require closing one side of Lake Ridge Parkway and will shift two-way traffic to one side of the street.  (Similar to what is taking place on Lakeview Drive, between Lake Ridge Parkway and Mansfield Road.)  Once the underground utility construction is complete on the closed half of Lake Ridge Parkway, two-way traffic will then be switched to the other side of the street and the utility construction crossing Lake Ridge Parkway will continue.  Once these utility crossings are complete, both sides of Lake Ridge Parkway will be reopened.
  • The Lake Ridge Parkway half-street closure will take pace roughly between Mansfield Road and Lakeview Drive.  If things go well, the Lake Ridge Parkway traffic detour will take place over an approximate four (4) working day period.
In October, the first half of the Lakeview Drive pavement repairs have progressed very well.  In mid-November, we are hopeful traffic will be driving over the repaired pavement.  Thereafter, street pavement repair operations will begin on the non-repaired side of the street and two-way traffic will be driving on the repaired half of Lakeview Drive. Please be aware, approximately the first 300 feet of Lakeview Drive nearest Mansfield Road will be reconstructed with the Mansfield Road street paving construction. 

Along Mansfield Road, between Lakeview Drive and Belt Line Road, we will continue working on utilities, moving dirt, and removing trees.

As always, thank you for your patience.

Oct. 22, 2015 Update
Predicted rain has rescheduled Mansfield Road construction. Mansfield Road construction related traffic restrictions, previously scheduled to begin Thursday, October 22, 2015, have been rescheduled to begin Tuesday, October 27, 2015. This assumes cooperative weather takes place Sunday and Monday, and the ground is not too muddy.

Oct. 19, 2015, through Oct. 24, 2015 - Scheduled Construction Operations
As a friendly reminder, the speed limit with in the Mansfield Road construction project has been reduced to 35 MPH.

On Mansfield Road generally Lake Ridge Drive and Mystic Shore Drive:
Thursday, October 22, 2015, temporary concrete street pavement will begin being placed abutting the south side of the existing street pavement.  This construction activity will require one of the two lanes of traffic to be closed.  Between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Mansfield Road traffic will be staged one direction at a time around this construction.  Flagmen will hold traffic back as opposite direction traffic is allowed to drive on the one lane around the construction.  Please expect delays.

This one lane traffic restriction is anticipated to continue through Thursday, October 29, 2015.  This assumes construction friendly weather continues and multiple other activities occur as scheduled.

For electronic notifications sent to your e-mail or text, with updated information on construction delays, please sign up to receive notification using the link at the top of this page.

Following the installation of this temporary street pavement, traffic will be shifted onto the temporary pavement, and construction will take place on the north side of the road, within the area of the currently existing road.

Various other construction operations are underway including:
  • Lakeview Drive street repairs will continue.  Localized street repair - street concrete replacement - is anticipated to begin this week.  Localized street failure pavement removal and subgrade work will continue at other locations along Lakeview Drive.
  • Waterline replacement on Anderson Road will continue.
  • General tree clearing will continue on the north side of Mansfield Road.

Oct. 2, 2015

Work on Mansfield Road and Lakeview Drive is picking up momentum this week. Paving work on Lakeview is narrowing to one lane in places.

Cedar Hill police will be monitoring traffic on Mansfield Road to be sure everyone is observing the lower 35 mph speed limit in the construction zone from the Ninth Grade Center to the Joe Pool Lake bridge. Be alert to flag men in the area assisting drivers and construction equipment who have to share the road. Safety is a pirmary concern. Please allow for extra time when driving on Mansfield Road.
