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

Bedford Euless Road Reconstruction

Project Overview & FAQs
As of mid-September, the contractor is on-site installing storm drain improvements on the south side of Bedford Euless Road, opposite of Nevada Trail. Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction from Colorado Boulevard to east of Nevada Trail. The storm drain improvements at this location are anticipated to take approximately 1 month, weather permitting. Upon completion of the storm drain improvements, the contractor will be closing the northern two lanes and center turn lane of Bedford Euless Road from Booth Calloway to east of Strummer Drive to begin working on utilities, paving, and pedestrian improvements. The southern two lanes of Bedford Euless Road will remain open and be set up for two-way traffic. Access to businesses on Bedford Euless Road will remain open throughout the project.

Glenview Drive Reconstruction

Franchise utilities have begun relocating and improving utility infrastructure along Glenview Drive. This will include moving a 16” high-pressure gas line along with several smaller distribution lines.  After the franchise utility improvements are complete, Glenview will be reconstructed 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. Underground utility improvements will also be made as part of this project.

Upcoming Improvements

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. Work has begun on repairing the curbs, gutter and subgrade. The paving work will be completed this fall.  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 fall 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 with TxDOT.

Davis Blvd at Northeast Parkway Deceleration Lane

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.  

Recently Completed Improvements

Slurry Seal Maintenance

A slurry seal application was placed on several residential streets in early July 2022 as part of the ongoing  Preventive Street Maintenance Program .  Slurry seal is a thin asphalt overlay / seal coat that fills in small cracks and surface imperfections to give the roadway a uniform color and texture. Most importantly it seals the pavement, preventing the infiltration of water, which is the most frequent cause of pavement failure. This maintenance helps to preserve and extend the life of our neighborhood streets. Streets that received the slurry seal application included: 

  • Bursey Ct, from Bursey Rd to the cul-de-sac; 
  • Oak Ct, from Davis Blvd to the cul-de-sac; 
  • Steeple Ridge Dr, from Shady Grove Rd to Ridge Run Dr; 
  • Dogwood Ln, from Crosstimbers Ln to Meadowview Ter;
  • Harwick Ln, from Yarmouth Ave to Winchester Rd;
  • Jenifer Ln, from Central Ave to Brandi Pl;
  • Market Ct, from Orange Valley to cul-de-sac;
  • Oak Hills Ct, from Amundson Dr to cul-de-sac; 
  • Rogene Ct, from Rogene St to cul-de-sac; 
  • Staci Ct, from Brandi Pl to cul-de-sac; 
  • Willowcrest Dr, from Wendell Ct S to Wendell Dr; 
  • Rumfield Rd, from Northfield Dr to Spring Oak Dr.
