Hidden Creek Parkway 1-million gallon elevated storage tank and 16-inch water line
Construction of the I-35W 16-inch water transmission main project will begin to affect Commerce Street, north of Renfro Street, starting later this week. Commerce Street will be closed to through traffic south of Rudd Street for several weeks.
Traffic will be detoured to Wilson Street and the Hwy.174 service road to access the northern portion of Commerce Street and Rudd Street from the south. Both streets can also be accessed via the southbound I-35W service road from Alsbury Boulevard.
The water line project goes hand in hand with the new 1-million gallon elevated water storage tank located at the southeast corner of Dobson Street and Hidden Creek Parkway. The 16-inch water line to service the new tank will run from Alsbury Boulevard south to Hidden Creek Parkway.
The 16-inch waterline begins at the pump station located at the west end of Industrial Park Boulevard. The alignment proceeds south, adjacent to the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way, to the south property line of the Halliburton property in the 600 block of North Burleson Boulevard.
The water line turns east to the Texas Department of Transportation service road right-of-way. The line is routed in a southwesterly direction adjacent to the TxDOT right-of-way, passing under Hwy. 174, to the north end of Commerce Street. The line will be installed along the length of Commerce Street to Miller Street. The water line will then proceed in an easterly direction along Miller Street to the east end of Miller Court. The final leg will go in a southeasterly direction where it will end at the north end of Hidden Creek Golf Course.
