Motorists, keep your eyes open for traffic control on Chapin Road between Renzel Boulevard and Cork Place this week.
The contractor on Fort Worth’s Westside Pressure Plane and Water Improvements project will begin to install temporary water lines to allow for the replacement of an existing 16-inch-diameter cast iron line that was installed in 1959. Construction will start at the intersection of Chapin Road and Cork Place, then will move westward. Lane closures are not expected this week.
This part of Chapin Road – from the Renzel Boulevard/Chapin Road intersection to Cork Place – is in Benbrook, but construction may also impact drivers in Fort Worth. Please slow down and watch out for workers and fellow drivers.
The closures will begin at the east end of the project and moves west. Those phases are:
- Westerly Road to Cimmaron Trail, which includes Western Hills High School and Waverly Park Elementary School;
- Cimmaron Trail to Bandera Road – between Westside Presbyterian Church and Western Hills Church of Christ;
- Mary’s Creek Drive to Morenci Drive, which includes Leonard Middle School;
- And, Carman Drive to West Loop 820 South.
Signs will detour residents, schools and churches that are north of Chapin Road to Bangor Drive, Guadalupe Road and Camp Bowie West Boulevard.
This capital improvement project includes installing new water mains in streets and easements to alleviate low water pressure issues. Construction is projected to be complete by the end of August. Learn more.
