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

Residential Street Reconstruction

Reconstruction of Meadow Oak Drive will begin in early January.  This will be followed by Pearl Street and then Southampton Drive. Residents will receive door hangers prior to any work beginning on their street. 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. The replacement of underground utilities was recently completed on Stonybrook Drive and is in progress on Dawn Drive. These projects are part of the 2020 Street Bond Program. 

Bedford Euless Road Reconstruction

Project Overview & FAQs
Traffic on Bedford Euless Road will be shifting to the southern side of the roadway between Booth Calloway Road and Strummer Drive, so that the contractor can begin working on the northern side of the street. The eastbound lane is expected to shift on Thursday, Oct. 20 followed by the westbound lane on Friday, Oct. 21. Please slow down, watch for workers and pay extra attention when traveling in this area. The speed limit in the construction zone is reduced to 30 mph. Access to restaurants and other businesses on Bedford Euless will remain open throughout construction. Access to Colorado Boulevard and Strummer Drive from Bedford Euless will also remain open. Access to Maple Street, Nevada Trail, and Eldorado Drive from Bedford Euless will be closed during this phase of construction. Detour routes will be placed throughout the neighborhood. Reconstruction of Bedford Euless Road is part of the 2020 Street Bond Program.

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. Reconstruction of Glenview is part of the 2020 Street Bond Program.

Upcoming Improvements

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. At their Nov. 14, 2022 meeting, the City Council awarded a contract to Bean Electrical Inc. for the construction of the new traffic signal. Construction will take place in 2023. Specific timing will be dependent upon the delivery of the signal poles and components. We will share more information as it becomes available. 

Iron Horse Boulevard Reconstruction

The reconstruction of Iron Horse Boulevard 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. 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. The city is currently seeking construction bids for the first phase. Construction is expected to begin in early 2023.

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.

Asphalt Overlay Projects

The following streets were resurfaced with new asphalt pavement in November 2022 as part of the city's ongoing Preventive Street Maintenance Program:

  • Cancun Drive, (from Buenos Aires Drive to Trinidad Drive)
  • Dewsbury Street, (from Glendale Drive to Chapman Road)

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;
