Rufe Snow Widening Project
STATUS UPDATE - MARCH 31, 2017
North Richland Hills Rufe Snow Expansion Project is currently in a hold status due to the Contractor “Kodiak Construction” not providing manpower on site for the rough excavation of the sub-grade. NRH per their contract is delaying payment to the contractor until progress is observed with site excavation. Kodiak’s Supervisor states they hope to begin excavation the week of April 3rd, 2017 and if accomplished will try to make every effort to complete the project as planned in April of 2018.
Beginning June 27, 2016, the City of North Richland Hills will start the Rufe Snow Drive Widening Project starting at Watauga Road and progressing north towards Ridgetop Drive. The project has a schedule of 426 working days.
The project includes widening the existing 5-lane section to a 7-lane section, similar to the portion of Rufe Snow south of Watauga Road. The three signalized intersections (Watauga, Chapman, Hightower) will also be reconstructed with new signal equipment, and dedicated turn lanes where warranted. Sidewalks will be provided along both sides of the new roadway. While this project will greatly improve congestion in this heavily traveled corridor, the construction phase will be challenging at times for adjacent property and business owners. NRH and Watauga staff will be working closely with the contractor to expedite the process and preserve as much mobility as possible during the work.
The City shall provide Driveway entry signs along Rufe Snow Drive notifying motorist of business entry points where construction barricading blocks normal visibility of drive approaches. These signs shall be part of the construction barricade placement.
Additional temporary signs may be granted to a business by the Building Official when construction initiated by a governmental entity limits or reduces the access or visibility of the business for more than 60 days. The time allowed for the display of a temporary or portable sign may be extended to the full duration of the limited or reduced access or visibility. Such signs shall be exempt from a permit fee. To request a temporary sign contact the Watauga Public Works Department at 817.514.5839
