District 13 Street Update

  • Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) has schedueld a pipeline replacement project in the Alley between Fredrick Dquare and Sherry Lane from Lomo Alto Drive to Douglas Ave  starting November 7, 2016, with an estimated completion date of spring 2017. ​​
  • Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) have a project on Walnut Hill from Surrey Oaks Drive to the Dallas
    North Tollway (DNT). All of the water mains have been installed and are operational. The paving over the new water mains is 90% complete. The contractor is currently working on the 24" wastewater main in front of Ursuline Academy, tunneling East past Inwood. Once the tunnel heading East is completed, the contractor will turn the tunneling machine around and head west down Walnut Hill towards the end of the project, approximately 700 feet. The contractor anticipates that the tunneled sections will be complete by mid-January. Overall, the utility work is estimated to be complete by April 2017, followed by final paving restoration. Final paving restoration will consist of one lane in both the eastbound and westbound directions as well as areas impacted by crossings to make utility connections. Staff estimates that all paving restoration will be completed in May 2017. The contractor is scheduled to work the week between Christmas and New Year's. Staff will closely monitor the project during this time and keep the area as tidy as possible.
  • Please be advised that Dallas Water Utilities Staff has requested the approval for extended work hours on Monday, October 24th and Tuesday, October 25th at 12am-7am at the Walcrest Pumpstation ​at the corner of Hill​cres​​t Rd and Walnut Hill Ln. The work completed will implement a concrete placement for the pump room slab that is very large - approximately 460 cubic yards of concrete - roughly 50-60 trucks will be required.  In working with concrete suppliers it was determined that they cannot supply that quantity and meet the required time intervals for delivery during normal work hours due to traffic and other site limitations.  There will be lighting and noise associated with the work, and strategies are planned to help minimize these effects for the neighbors.
