Dairy Ashford Rd. – Complete Closure
All lanes of Dairy Ashford will be closed at the railroad tracks starting Thursday, April 11 through Sunday, April 14. Union Pacific Railroad will be working on the railroad in preparation of the road widening.
Residents are asked to note detour messaging and instructions. Detour routes will be as follows:
Northbound Dairy Ashford traffic will detour via US Hwy 90 to Industrial Road to Reed Road to Julie Rivers to Dairy Ashford. Southbound Dairy Ashford traffic will detour via Corporate Drive to US Hwy 59 to US Hwy 90A to Dairy Ashford. See map for reference.
Update: February 27, 2019
A left turn northbound lane on Dairy Ashford (at US Hwy 90A) will be closed beginning Wednesday, February 27.
Update: February 12, 2019
The new southbound Dairy Ashford outside lane between HWY 90 and Parklane Blvd. will open February 13. On Thursday February 14, starting at 9 a.m., work will be done on railroad communication to the traffic signal on HWY 90 at Dairy Ashford. This work is expected to take approximately one hour and might lead to traffic delays. Union Pacific will be managing the railroad crossing.
Update: January 24, 2019
Effective today, northbound traffic on the left two lanes on Dairy Ashford at HWY90 must turn left. Motorist guidance signage has been installed and pavement markings are in place.
Update: January 22, 2019
Utility relocation work will be starting on Dairy Ashford Rd. (north of HWY 90A) today, January 22, 2019.
Project Update: January 16, 2019
Construction of a permanent, raised median will begin at the intersection of Dairy Ashford Rd. and Parklane Blvd. on January 29. Traffic on Parklane will no longer be able to cross through Dairy Ashford. Eastbound and westbound traffic will have to turn right at Dairy Ashford. This change is necessary to ensure safety along this intersection, prevent accidents, and improve mobility on this high traffic road.
Dairy Ashford is being widened from four lanes to six lanes at this intersection. A project design-phase traffic study identified the potential of vehicles crossing six lanes of traffic as a safety issue. Project design then incorporated the raised median to prevent cross traffic and address safety concerns.
Update: January 7
Construction work is progressing northward on Dairy Ashford, and work necessary to prepare for a temporary traffic signal at U.S. Highway 90A is scheduled to begin on Jan. 7.
Under the guidance of an arborist, the city has proactively worked with the construction consultant to minimize tree removal. These efforts have already saved 15 trees, and we will continue to conduct field assessments as the project progresses to possibly save more trees.
