Construction on Crestline Road

About 40 affected homeowners attended a public meeting on February 24, 2011 at Thomas Place to hear the City of Fort Worth Transportation & Public Works department explain the 2007 Critical Capital Project – Part 3: Pavement Reconstruction and Water & Sanitary Sewer Replacement. Crews broke ground the next morning on Crestline, one of the major arterials for AHNA.

The entire construction project will last at least nine months and includes the following streets:

  • Crestline from Camp Bowie to Montgomery
  • Frederick from Crestline to Lafayette
  • Dexter from Clover to Sutter
  • Sutter from Lafayette to Byers

Here are answers to some of the most pressing questions:  

  • Construction will take place from 7 a.m. until dark on weekdays, with some Saturday hours as necessary.
  • Each phase will be completed before work starts on the next street. The work on Crestline is expected to take 90 days.
  • Work will take place on one side of the street at a time, allowing drivers to access the opposite side of the road during off hours.
  • There will be no interference with regularly scheduled trash pick-up.
  • Driveway approaches will be widened to a minimum of 11 feet or matched if wider than that now. When they pour the new driveway approaches, it’s anticipated that residents will be unable to use their driveways for approximately two weeks.
  • Residents with sprinkler systems should mark sprinkler heads in the parkway (the area located between the street and sidewalk) so they can cap these off.  Capping will allow you to use your sprinkler system except where the heads have been capped. The city will reattach the heads and replace any broken ones.
  • Existing sidewalks will be retained, repaired and replaced as needed; new sidewalks will NOT be poured where sidewalks did not previously exist.
  • Curbs will be replaced. The city will replace sod, but not other plants or groundcover located in the parkway. Plants less than three feet high will likely be removed. Workers will not disturb trees located within the parkway.
  • While connecting the new water service, the city anticipates an interruption in water service during daytime hours, typically 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. They do not anticipate an interruption in the sewer service.
