Phase 1 Paving, Drainage, and Sanitary Sewer Improvements for Stone Road, Centre Drive, and McCall Street
The design of a connector road east of I-35W and McCall Street was identified in the 2005-2009 Capital Improvements Plan presented to city council in 2004. The purpose of the project is to provide additional circulation from Alsbury Boulevard to FM 3391 (East Renfro Street) and provide needed ingress and egress to many properties along the I-35W frontage road. This project includes paving, drainage, and sanitary sewer improvements along Stone Road extending from McCall Street to Centre Drive. The construction of the Phase 1 Stone Road project is approximately 24 percent complete. The project has been placed on an accelerated schedule with the participation of Sam’s Club. Paving activities will start Monday, Jan. 6, 2014. Weather permitting, the project will be partially open to traffic in mid-March in order to provide access to the east driveway of the Sam’s Club site on Burleson Boulevard.

Hidden Creek Parkway 1-million gallon elevated storage tank and 16-inch water line
Construction of the I-35W 16-inch water transmission main project is 99 percent complete. There will be no further traffic interruptions due to the construction of this project.
The water line project goes hand in hand with the new 1-million gallon elevated water storage tank located at the southeast corner of Dobson Street and Hidden Creek Parkway. The 16-inch water line to service the new tank will run from Alsbury Boulevard south to Hidden Creek Parkway. The water storage tank is 90 percent complete. The remaining work includes internal painting and piping, electrical and control work and site work (including entry road, parking lot, and fencing).
The 16-inch waterline begins at the pump station located at the west end of Industrial Park Boulevard. The alignment proceeds south, adjacent to the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way, to the south property line of the Halliburton property in the 600 block of North Burleson Boulevard. The water line turns east to the Texas Department of Transportation service road right-of-way. The line is routed in a southwesterly direction adjacent to the TxDOT right-of-way, passing under Hwy. 174, to the north end of Commerce Street. The line will be installed along the length of Commerce Street to Miller Street. The water line will then proceed in an easterly direction along Miller Street to the east end of Miller Court. The final leg will go in a southeasterly direction where it will end at the north end of Hidden Creek Golf Course.
Both projects will be completed on time or ahead of schedule.
Hulen Low Pressure Plane Water Pump Station Improvement
City council awarded an engineering services contract to design the Hulen Low Pressure Plane Water Pump Station Improvements project to Birkhoff, Hendricks & Carter, L.L.P. (BHC) Nov. 5, 2012. The purpose of the pump station is to provide additional pumping capacity to the lower pressure plan of the Burleson water system. BHC completed the design of the pump station and City staff advertised the project for construction in June 2013. The advertised project included expansion of the existing Hulen Pump Station building, additional pumps, controls and piping. See map

16-inch Water Transmission Line to Service the Hulen LPP Pump Station
UPDATE: Signal lights will be replaced with a four-way stop at the intersection of Summercrest Boulevard and Alsbury Boulevard starting on Tuesday, March 18. The intersection will temporarily be made into a 4-way stop intersection to accommodate the construction of the Low Pressure Plane 16-inch waterline. City crews will be detouring traffic to one lane in each direction, utilizing the westbound lanes. Crews will bore through the intersection in the eastbound lanes. Engineering anticipates the intersection to remain a 4-way stop for at least a month.
City council awarded an engineering services contract to design a water transmission line to Teague Nall and Perkins, Inc. (TNP) Nov. 19, 2012. The purpose of this line is to supply the Burleson water system lower pressure plane. TNP completed the design of the 16-inch waterline and City staff advertised the project for construction beginning in June 2013. The advertised project included a new transmission line originating at the existing pump station located at Southwest Hulen Street and terminating near Flagstone Drive. Beginning Monday, Jan. 6, 2014, the right lane, eastbound, on Alsbury Boulevard between Heather Street and Ridgehill Drive will be closed for construction of the Alsbury Boulevard 16-inch water line project. Traffic will be detoured for approximately two days, at which time the traffic will be detoured to one lane in each direction until the waterline construction is complete and the road is repaved. Heather Street is the last street to intersect with Alsbury as you drive west between Summercrest Boulevard and FM 731. Ridgehill Drive is the second intersection, headed west, after the four-way stop at Summercrest. See map
