Construction progressed significantly during the month of June. Bridge beams, and the concrete bridge deck were installed on the future west bound bridge over Baggett Branch Creek. Between Anderson Road and Baggett Branch Creek, a section of the future 12-foot-wide hike and bike trail was installed. Major sections of the future east bound (headed to Down Town Cedar Hill) concrete street pavement was installed between Mystic Shore Drive and the existing concrete road way at Belt Line Road.
New intersection signal light poles were installed (not activated) at Lakeview Drive and Mansfield Road. Lakeview Drive at Mansfield Road was reopened.
Dirt fill and grading, new water line service switches, drainage concrete headwalls @ Lake Ridge Parkway, and other miscellaneous items also made significant progress during the month of June.
During the month of July, we are hopeful for another big month of construction progress.
Work on the west bound bridge over Baggett Branch Creek will continue through July and likely into August.
Hike and Bike Trail construction will be minimal and will not pick up again till after the west bound new street concrete pavement has been installed between Baggett Branch Creek and Belt Line Road.
Between Mystic Shore Drive and Belt Line Road, we will continue the Mansfield Road concrete pavement operations. The schedule includes completing Royal Vista Drive and Mystic Shore Drive concrete pavement. Several driveways crossing the paved section of Mansfield Road were left open and not paved. We will be pouring the new street pavement at these driveway “leave outs.”
Mid-July, between Mystic Shore Drive to about Robin Road, we will shift the two-way Mansfield Road traffic onto a new section of Mansfield Road pavement.
Pending electrical service activation, the intersection signal light at Lakeview Drive will begin operation in July.
Mid to late July, we are hopeful to close down Lake Ridge Parkway at Mansfield Road. We will post notifications to “Notify Me – Mansfield Road Construction” as this closure date is finalized.

On behalf of the City of Cedar Hill, Tiseo Paving Company, and the numerous construction workers, please continue your patience, caution and safe driving through the construction zone.
