As part of the ongoing City of Fort Worth water line construction project, beginning August 28 and/or August 29, Northbound Old Decatur Rd traffic will shift to the West side of the medians at the McLeroy Blvd intersection. This is based on added concrete on the West side of the road at that intersection for southbound traffic. This extra concrete will allow two southbound lanes at the intersection. One for through traffic and right hand turns and the other for left hand turns (towards Willow Creek Elementary). This configuration should help relieve some of the southbound traffic backup. This traffic change is needed to continue the water line installation south of the First Baptist Church and ultimately to the tie in point near McLeroy Blvd.
Also, the W.J. Boaz and Old Decatur Rd intersection is back open but use caution as the traffic lights are currently not flashing and the intersection remains a 4 way stop. We will continue to have an officer presence for traffic control during peak hours and as call load allows.
