Ben Payne Road:

Ben Payne Road (from Hwy 66 to CD Boren Pkwy) will be reconstructed. The contractor will be removing the existing asphalt from May 14th-June 15th.

Once the asphalt is removed, a thick layer of a mixture of gravel/dirt/sand/asphalt will be placed. The layer will be compacted to provide a driveable surface. This surface will remain for approximately one year. The driveable surface may cause dust or muddy conditions. The City will strive to keep the roadway in a driveable condition until the top asphalt layer is placed on the roadway. It is anticipated that the asphalt will be placed on Ben Payne January 2019-May 2019. The work may occur earlier as the construction progresses.

Blackland Road Asphalt Repair

The existing concrete sections of Blackland Road from Northview to the Greenbriar intersection will be removed and replaced. During this section, the section of Blackland Road from Northview Drive to Greenbriar. Traffic may take a detour route through Chamberlain Reserve (North Churchill Drive) and/or Melody Ranch (Krider Drive). Detour signs will be installed to direct traffic. This construction will occur from June 2018 to September 2018.

Blackland Road Reconstruction

Blackland Road from Greenbriar to approximately 700 feet north of Sun Valley Drive will be reconstructed from June 2018 to May 2019. Residents shall expect delays during this time frame. Two-way, one lane traffic is expected. Flaggers will be directing traffic during the day, while standard traffic control devices will be in place at night time. It is anticipated the top portion of the roadway (approximately 7”-8” of asphalt) will be removed. The existing subgrade/clay soils under the roadway will be treated to provide for a hard, compacted surface under the future roadway. Once the subgrade is complete, the asphalt will be placed on the surface. New pavement markings will be installed once the roadway is complete. In addition to the paving improvements, drainage improvements consisting of the removal and replacement of the driveway culverts along the roadway will occur.
