Construction of SH 161 Frontage Roads Continues

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE; May 3, 2006

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will begin construction of the second segment of frontage roads for the proposed SH 161 toll road in southwest Dallas County on Monday, May 8. The second phase construction will span from Spur 303 (Pioneer Parkway) to I-30.

The $24.9 million, 2.5-mile project will include construction of three frontage lanes in each direction, bridge structures over South Fork and Cotton Creek, and retaining and noise walls, said Mike Bostic, P.E., TxDOTs Southwest Dallas County area engineer.

Phase one construction of the SH 161 frontage roads, from I-20 to Spur 303, began in October 2005, and has a completion date set for September 2008. Work on the third phase of frontage roads, which encompasses the I-30, SH 161 interchange, is scheduled to begin this summer.

Contractor for the project is J.D. Abrams, L.P. of Austin. The project is expected to take 24 months to complete.
