Construction began in September 2017 on the widening of US 67, from Belt Line Road to IH-20, to provide congestion relief and
operations improvements to the US 67 corridor. The six-mile project includes widening of the existing 4-lane roadway to a
6-lane roadway and the installation of Texas U-turns at FM 1382 and at Belt Line Road.
The project is scheduled to be completed in 2020.

Texas Street / Hardy Street Drainage Improvements Project

The 2017 Capital Improvements Bond Program included funding for the design and construction of the Texas Street and Hardy Street Drainage Improvements project   The purpose of the drainage improvements is to collect storm water at Texas Street and Hardy Street and direct the water to an underground system. This involves constructing an underground system at Texas and Hardy Streets and connecting to the existing system at Belt Line Road.  

Texas Hardy Project Sign JPGOn May 5, 2018, the City executed a design contract with Dunaway Associates, LP, and on July 14, 2020, Cedar Hill City Council awarded the construction contract to SYB Construction. Construction for the Texas Street and Hardy Drainage Improvements began July 24th and is anticipated to take about a year to complete.  

Sanitary Sewer Installation on Cedar Street JPG
The Texas Street / Hardy Street Drainage Improvements project includes installation of underground reinforced concrete drainage boxes from south of Belt Line Road crossing business and residential properties to Cedar Street then to Hardy street extending just past the intersection of Texas Street.  Storm drainage inlet structures will be installed at various locations along the underground storm drainage boxes.

Sanitary Sewer Installation on Cedar Street JPGSections of water mains and sanitary sewer lines will also be replaced at new locations to clear the drainage improvements.  The sanitary sewer main on Hardy Street between Texas Street and Hickerson Street will also be replaced.   AT&T has relocated their facilities on Cedar Street in anticipation of the construction.   Atmos Energy will be replacing conflicting sections of the gas distribution system.

During construction efforts, there will be localized street closures to through traffic, however access to private property will be maintained. Hardy Street between Cedar Street and Texas Street will be closed to through traffic during the majority of the construction project.  Other roadway sections within the project limits will be closed during periods of heavy construction in that area.  Barricades and signage will be installed. 

Trash pickup and mail delivery will be maintained.  Water and gas services will be temporarily interrupted during time when the distribution system is switched to new mains. 

We hope to reasonably minimize the disruption and inconveniences which are inherent with construction of this magnitude.  If there are any questions or concerns regarding the construction, please do not hesitate in contacting me.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
