Section of Chipman Road Set to Close to Through Traffic Beginning July 31
Closure to Remain in Place Through Completion of Project in Spring 2025
The Chipman Road Improvements project is underway and a section of Northwest Chipman Road between View High Drive and Northwest Bent Tree Drive is set to close to through traffic beginning Monday, July 31, and will remain closed until completion of the project in approximately spring 2025. The detour route is Northwest Pryor Road, Southwest Third Street, and View High Drive.
Moving closures for clearing operations will take place for approximately three weeks, and then an extended closure will begin in the middle of the project from east of Northwest Edgewood Drive to just west of the one lane railroad bridge at the Rock Island Trail. Local access will be maintained at all times. During this time the connection of Northwest Ashurst Drive to View High Drive will also be completed. All work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change.
Future phases include construction in the west side of the project from View High Drive to Northwest Edgewood Drive including the installation of a traffic signal at View High Drive, and construction in the east side of the project from the one lane railroad bridge at the Rock Island Trail to Northwest Bent Tree Drive including the replacement of the one lane railroad bridge at the Rock Island Trail with a new pedestrian bridge.
The project will widen and reconstruct Northwest Chipman Road from View High Drive to Northwest Bent Tree Drive as a two- and three-lane roadway with sidewalks, shared use path, streetlighting, traffic signal, new pedestrian bridge, an enclosed drainage system, and relocation and/or upsizing of water and sewer lines. The contractor for the project is Emery Sapp & Sons.
This project was identified in the City's 2006 Thoroughfare Master Plan as a needed improvement, and is funded by the 2007 Capital Improvement Sales Tax renewal.
