Street Improvements

Each year the City of North Richland Hills improves a number of city streets through the Preventive Street Maintenance Program and the Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The Preventive Street Maintenance Program focuses on pavement sealing, patching and overlaying to preserve and extend the life of the streets. When a street has exceeded its pavement life expectancy and can no longer be effectively maintained through the Preventive Street Maintenance Program it is recommended for reconstruction as a capital project. In November 2020, NRH voters approved $49 million in bonds to reconstruct 27 streets over the next 5 to 7 years. Questions about street improvement projects may be directed to  NRH Public Works at 817-427-6400 or by email

Improvements Underway

City Point Drive Reconstruction

The reconstruction of City Point Drive between Glenview Drive and City Hall was completed in April by the developer of the City Point project. On April 26, the developer began reconstruction of a portion of City Point Drive adjacent to City Hall. Traffic is being detoured through the parking lot on the north side of City Hall. Please slow down and obey traffic signs when traveling in this area. 

Northeast Parkway Extension & Traffic Signal

Northeast Parkway was recently extended west of Davis Boulevard to provide access to the new Smithfield Elementary School.  A new traffic signal was activated at the intersection of Northeast Parkway and Davis Boulevard on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2022.  A deceleration lane will also be added on southbound Davis for vehicles turning  west onto Northeast Parkway once TxDOT approves the final plans and releases that permit.  We had planned for both the traffic signal and deceleration lane to be in place prior to the beginning of the 2021/2022 school year, but the project experienced traffic study and TxDOT review delays due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Upcoming Improvements

Bedford Euless Road Reconstruction

At their April 25, 2022 meeting, the City Council awarded a contract for the reconstruction of Bedford Euless Road to Quality Excavation, LLC, with construction work expected to begin this summer. This project will reconstruct the roadway from just east of Boulevard 26 to Strummer Drive with reinforced concrete pavement. Underground utility improvements will also be made and sidewalks will be added to the south side of the roadway where they are currently missing. Based on the Vision 2030 Transportation Plan recommendation, the roadway will be reduced from the current 5 lanes to a 3-lane configuration. Access to businesses on Bedford Euless Road will remain open during construction. Prior to the street reconstruction work, Atmos Energy will be replacing a gas pipeline along Bedford Euless Road. Atmos' work is expected to begin in May and should be completed in July. 

Glenview Drive Reconstruction

Engineering design work is wrapping up for the reconstruction of Glenview Drive from Boulevard 26 to Flory Street and from Honey Lane to the western city limit. The existing asphalt roadway will be replaced with reinforced concrete pavement. Sidewalks will be reconstructed and added where they are currently missing. In conjunction with our street improvement project, Atmos Energy has decided to relocate a 16” high-pressure gas line along with several smaller distribution lines that are located under Glenview Drive. This utility work will take place prior to the roadway being reconstructed. We are currently coordinating with Atmos on the project schedule and anticipate the work to begin in the coming months.

Iron Horse Boulevard Reconstruction

Engineering design work is underway for the reconstruction of Iron Horse Boulevard, which will be completed in two phases. The first phase will reconstruct Iron Horse Boulevard east of Rufe Snow Drive. The existing roadway will be replaced with reinforced concrete pavement and sidewalks will be added where currently missing. Based on the Vision 2030 Transportation Plan recommendation, the bulk of the roadway will be reduced to a wide two-lane configuration with a raised median. We anticipate going out for construction bids on the east phase later this year. The second phase will reconstruct Iron Horse from Rufe Snow Drive west to Browning Drive. The existing roadway will be replaced with reinforced concrete pavement and sidewalks will be added. Following the engineering design work, the west phase will go out for construction bids in 2023.

Residential Street Reconstruction

  • Diamond Loch West
  • Meadow Oak Drive
  • Pearl Street
  • Southampton Drive 

Contracts were awarded at the April 11, 2022 City Council Meeting for the reconstruction of these four residential streets as part of the 2020 Street Bond Program. On each residential street project there will be three phases of work. The first phase is replacing the existing water and sanitary sewer mains located beneath the roadway pavement. The second phase is repairing or replacing portions of curb, gutter and drive approaches where needed. The final phase is removing existing roadway pavement, treatment of the subgrade in accordance with geotechnical recommendations specific to each project site, and placement of new asphalt pavement. The work is expected to be completed this summer. Residents on impacted streets will receive notice from contractors prior to the start of construction activities. Every effort will be made to minimize impacts to residents during construction. Driveways will be temporarily inaccessible only while fresh asphalt is being poured and compacted in front of your driveway.

Residential Street Asphalt Overlay

An asphalt overlay consists of applying a 2 to 3-inch layer of hot mix asphalt on the street to level and waterproof the roadway. Overlay projects will be completed this summer on the following residential streets. Maps and tables showing the project limits can be found on the Preventive Street Maintenance Program webpage. 

  • Cancun Drive
  • Dewsbury Street
  • Hanging Cliff Place
  • Hillside Court
  • Jamie Rene Lane
  • Moss Lane
  • Onyx Drive South
  • Ridgetop Road
  • Vance Road

Hightower & Davis Traffic Signal

This project will consist of engineering and construction of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Davis Boulevard and Hightower Drive. This project is in the permitting process and is anticipated to be bid this Spring, with construction to follow later this year.
