Construction continues on the Hemphill-Lamar Connector project. The project remains on schedule for completion next spring.
All railroad bridges for the underpass have been completed, and the tracks have been restored. Excavating dirt and rock under the bridges has been completed. Work on the interior of the underpass has begun.
Crews recently discovered that the retaining walls installed on the south side of the Hemphill-Lamar underpass are undergoing stress for which they were not engineered. These retaining walls provide a unique living, green wall with sustainable plantings. To address this stress, these walls will be removed, redesigned and reconstructed to ensure the long-term viability of this feature.
Work on the retaining wall will not affect the project schedule or budget, and removal and replacement of the wall is expected to begin in October.
Total cost of the project is $53 million dollars with the city contributing $26.6 million. The remaining funding will come from the North Central Texas Council of Governments, Texas Department of Transportation and Tarrant County.
