Improvements to Mountain Creek Lake Toll Bridge
Beginning in April 2018, construction crews will start work on the Mountain Creek Lake Toll Bridge (MCLB). The MCLB provides an east-west crossing of Mountain Creek Lake from the Spur 303/Southeast 14th Street intersection in Grand Prairie to the Spur 303/Mountain Creek Parkway intersection in Dallas.
The project includes pavement rehabilitation, removal of the existing toll plaza and operations building, construction of new toll gantries, and removal and installation of new pavement markings and signage. The project is expected to last a year, weather permitting.
To minimize traffic impacts, most of the improvement work will be conducted behind traffic barrier, keeping the road open to traffic.
The majority of closures will occur during off peak hours— at night and on some weekends. It is anticipated that some weekend closures of the MCLB will be needed.
