The Challenge

Reconstruction of 1.5 miles of Ellsworth Road from two to six lanes between Hunt Highway and Cloud Road. Work also included installing curb and gutter, raised median, two concrete box culverts, and adding traffic signals at Santan Boulevard, Riggs Road, and Cloud Road.

This project involved the construction of three signalized intersections with phased construction, extensive traffic control, and utility conflict resolution. It also included involvement and coordination with multiple agencies.
