Midway Road Reconstruction
Ways to Stay Informed
Midway Road Overview Videos
In 2012, Addison voters approved $16 million in General Obligation bonds for the reconstruction of Midway Road from Spring Valley Road to Keller Springs Road. In November 2018, the City Council directed the City Manager to proceed with the issuance of Certificates of Obligation in the amount of $25 million to completely fund the project. The 2012 bond program did not include the replacement of the utilities under the roadway or the increase in scope to accommodate the new Master Transportation Plan elements that are included as part of the current plan.
Council gave notice of their intention to issue $15 million in Certificates of Obligation in July 2019. Dallas County has recently awarded Addison a $2.7 million grant dedicated to building a trail that will connect to the trail adjacent to the Silver Line.

Utility work continues on the Midway Road Revitalization Project at the Belt Line/Midway intersection and from Hornet Drive to Proton Road. Over the next few weeks, crews will be replacing the large waterline valves in the intersection and installing new waterlines across Belt Line Road. This work is being completed in phases to minimize the impact on area businesses as much as possible.
Nearly one-fourth of the new waterline has already been installed from Spring Valley to Belt Line. This work is running concurrently with the pipe and valve replacement at the intersection to expedite the revitalization efforts.
Various lane closures will continue to occur over the next several weeks as the work progresses. Some work will be performed during evening hours to minimize the impact on utility service in the area. We are still on schedule to have the new paving in the southern portion of the project completed by Fall 2022.
May 25, 2021 Update
Wednesday, May 26, expect delays at the Belt Line and Midway intersection from 9am through 11am. The traffic signals at the intersection will not be operational and traffic flow will be directed by police officers during that period. This work is dependent on weather.
May 24, 2021 Update
Over the past several months, construction crews have been working in two areas on the Midway Road Revitalization project. They initially started in the intersection of Midway and Belt Line roads but needed to temporarily shift priorities due to several reasons.
The first portion of work in the intersection is the replacement and realignment of multiple water mains that serve large portions of the Town. After construction initially began on the intersection, it was discovered that extra investigation and planning were necessary to minimize the time nearby restaurants and hotels would be without water service. The project engineering team, in partnership with the contractor, has developed a new approach to the intersection improvements that will not only minimize water disruption but should also significantly reduce the construction time required for the intersection.
Additionally, the February Winter Storm Event caused the shutdown of plastics plants in Texas which triggered a global shortage of construction materials like the PVC pipe that is needed for that complicated intersection. Town staff worked with the project contractor to locate any available alternative sources for these materials.
During this hiatus, the crews have focused efforts on preparing the median areas along Midway Road from Belt Line to Spring Valley and started installing utilities in that corridor while supplies were being obtained for the intersection.
We now have the materials needed to move forward with the intersection in hand and are ready to resume work on this area. You can expect to see temporary signals installed by the first week in June. Utility relocation work will begin the week of June 8 and paving is slated to begin at the end of June, weather permitting. We anticipate that major paving operations will be completed in the intersection in mid-September.
Because we were able to shift work to the southern end of the project while sourcing supplies, construction for the overall project is still on schedule to complete work from Spring Valley to Belt Line by November 2022.
March 24, 2021 Update
Construction crews have begun removing the medians and pavement at the Midway Road/Belt Line Road intersection to perform utility and pavement improvements. Drivers can expect to see various lane closures and traffic shifts as the phases of work rotate around the intersection. Please pay close attention to the signage in the area, as the lane functions (Left Turn Only, Right Turn Only, etc.) will change during the various phases of the work.
Utility work is scheduled to begin on Midway Road the week of March 29 starting at Spring Valley Road and progressing northward. During this work, traffic will be shifted to the outer lanes as the work progresses along the center portion of the street and median areas. This work will include the removal of sections of median pavement, curb & gutter, and median trees to allow for the utility construction. Please note that no parkway trees will be removed at this time.
March 4, 2021 Update
Short-duration lane closures will begin Monday, March 8 at the intersection of Midway and Belt Line Roads and continue over the next several weeks as work begins on the Midway Road Revitalization Project. Variable Message Boards have been placed around the intersection to provide advance warning of construction activities.
There will also be some short-duration lane closure along the Midway Road Corridor as the utility and communication companies adjust and relocate their facilities to accommodate the project.
February 3, 2021 Update
Expect lane closures on Midway and Belt Line (near the intersection) on February 4 from 10am to 4pm to perform utility locate services.
February 2, 2021 Update
You may have noticed that the Midway Road construction project signs have been installed. Construction will begin at the intersection of Midway and Belt Line in 2-3 weeks. Town staff is in the process of working with its contractors to finalize the phasing and traffic plans. Once we have the final plan in place, we will be able to share a more definitive schedule for lane closures and traffic switches. We will place variable message boards around the intersection one week before any permanent lane closures are implemented
In the meantime, there will be some non-peak hour temporary lane closures to install temporary traffic signal system components and locate buried utility lines.
December 14, 2020 Update
At its December 8 meeting, the City Council approved an almost $31 million contract with Tiseo Paving Company for Construction Services for the Midway Road Revitalization Project, which is approximately $480,000 under the project budget for construction services. Council also awarded Teague Nall Perkins (TNP) an approximately $880,000 contract for Design Support During Construction Services. Design Support During Construction Services is an industry standard for construction projects to assure the construction contractor utilizes means and methods that comply with the contract requirements. TNP is the Engineer of Record for the Midway Road Revitalization Project design. They are, therefore, uniquely positioned to provide the design support services because the Engineer of Record is required to be notified of or approve any requested interpretations and deviations by the construction contractor during construction.
Finally, Council awarded a roughly $225,000 contract to Kleinfelder, Inc. to perform materials testing services as quality assurance for the materials. Material testing services are required to assure the quality and consistency of the materials and workmanship utilized by the construction contractor to complete the Midway Road Revitalization Project.
Construction is slated to begin in mid-January.
