A ceremonial ribbon cutting was held last month to celebrate the end of work on the Spring Valley Road Rehabilitation Project. The ribbon cutting was attended by representatives from not only the City of Richardson, but also the City’s partners on the project: Dallas County, the City of Dallas and the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
The project began in summer 2017 and spanned a stretch of West Spring Valley Road from Coit Road to Weatherred/Goldmark Drive. The work included the replacement of two bridges, the repair of Spring Valley Road and adjacent sidewalks, intersection improvements, and traffic signal upgrades that integrated with the City’s Intelligent Transportation System.
The project was consistent with the City Council’s goal of reinvesting in infrastructure. The West Spring Valley Corridor, which stretches from Coit Road east to US 75, is one of six focal areas for redevelopment identified by the City Council with the adoption of the City’s comprehensive plan in 2009. Two of the other areas, Main Street east of US 75 and East Collins/Arapaho, are also currently undergoing rehabilitation work.
