  • Dallas Water Utilities is constructing new water and wastewater mains on State Highway 289 (Preston Road) from Walnut Hill Lane to Royal Lane (PID 4953).  DWU has a pipeline replacement project under construction at Preston Road from Walnut Hill Lane to Royal Lane that includes approximately 3,760 feet of water and 5,020 feet of wastewater mains.  The contractor has completed about 75 percent of the wastewater installation in Preston Road and is expected to reach the intersection of Preston Road and Royal Lane by March 2019.  Work at the intersection of Preston Road/Royal Lane is expected to take about one month to finish due to the heavy volume of traffic and limited work hours.  DWU is currently working with Traffic Control personnel regarding work restrictions at the intersection, and the expectation is that work will be restricted to night time hours due to the volume of traffic and safety concerns.  Once these working restrictions are confirmed, an additional update will be provided along with efforts to inform local residents that may be affected by the night time work. After completion of work at the intersection, the contractor plans to utilize two crews: one crew to install new water and wastewater mains in Royal Lane from just east of Preston Road to Jamestown and another crew for the installation of new water mains along Preston Road starting at Walnut Hill Lane and moving north to Royal Lane.  For water main construction along Preston Road, no lane closures are expected since the pipeline is being installed in the parkway using trenchless, directional drilling methods.  At Royal Lane, no more than one lane closure is expected for the water and wastewater main installation.  The overall estimated completion schedule for both Preston Road and Royal Lane is Fall 2019, weather permitting.For more information, please click the following link:  State Highway 289 Preston Road
