TxDOT - U.S. Highway 80 Improvements Project (IH 30 to FM 460)
What's happening now and work expected in the next 30 days:
The Plan: The U.S. Highway 80 proposed improvements consist of the reconstruction and widening of U.S. 80 from IH 30 in Dallas County to FM 460 in Kaufman County, within the cities of Dallas, Mesquite, Forney and the Town of Sunnyvale. The proposed plan will reconstruct the IH 635 interchange and widen main lanes and frontage roads. Frontage roads will be completed between Lawson Road and FM 460 over the East Fork of Trinity River. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will perform the work in phases. The first phase will be primarily within the Mesquite city limits.
The design consultant for the Mesquite section of the project has completed approximately 60% of the project design. Plans for utility coordination were provided to the City in March. The City is reviewing the plans for potential conflicts and will make adjustments by mid-2022. TxDOT’s land acquisition agent is contacting property owners regarding acquisition.
TxDOT is working on completing additional right-of-way acquisition along the project. The City is coordinating completion of Mesquite Heritage Trail underneath U.S. 80 at South Mesquite Creek. The City and Dallas County will construct the trail outside of TxDOT right-of-way between Gross Road and Towne Centre Drive.
Estimated completion date: To be determined by TxDOT.
