Project Overview

About. This project is in accordance with the City’s Thoroughfare Plan to alleviate traffic on FM 518 by providing an alternate east/west route between SH288 and SH35.

Scope. The project will require an extension of approximately 3.5 miles of McHard Road from Cullen Parkway to Mykawa Road, consisting of a 4-lane, concrete curb and gutter, divided roadway with raised medians and underground drainage. This includes the installation and construction, storm sewers, outfalls and detention, five traffic signals at secondary thoroughfares and major collectors, sidewalks, street lighting and landscaping. This project will be coordinated with the McHard Trunk Sewer extension and McHard Road Water Line Extension. Approximately 38,000’ of fiber will run from Country Place Parkway/Smith Ranch Road to SH 35/Main St.
