For about 30,000 travelers per day, Old Denton Road serves as a welcome to Carrollton, Texas. Following Garver-led improvements, the entryway featuring a smoother road and visually pleasing enhancements is now also a source of community pride.
Garver provided roadway design and construction phase support to reconstruct about one mile of six-lane thoroughfare that provides access to the President George Bush Turnpike. Work across disciplines was also conducted to provide new LED lighting and bridge railing redesign to match others around the city.
“This project was transformative for the widely used corridor throughout the city,” said Carrollton Mayor Kevin Falconer. “And it now serves as a visual enhancement to the community.”
Because of high traffic volumes, Garver worked closely with the contractor to coordinate unique construction phases. A three-phase plan kept two lanes of traffic moving in both directions throughout construction, and a two-phase plan for a portion near Creekview High School ensured construction was complete to handle traffic increases when the new school year began.
By utilizing A+B bidding, total construction was completed 118 days ahead of schedule.
