By Nicholas Sakelaris - News-Mirror Writer - Thu, May. 17, 2007
The City Council approved a funding agreement Monday with the Texas Department of Transportation to get the ball rolling on new service roads and Texas Turnarounds on U.S. 287 between Walnut Creek Drive and East Broad Street.

Construction is expected to start by 2008 and be completed by 2010. There will be two Texas Turnarounds on Walnut Creek Drive and one on East Broad Street, which will provide access to The Shops at Broad Street, several hotels and Kohl’s at the Mansfield Marketplace. The city’s share of the project will be $4 million with TxDOT, Tarrant County and federal funding paying the rest. The new Texas U’s will be enhanced with brick or stone to improve the visual appearance of the bridges, said Bart VanAmburgh, city engineer.
