Project Description:

This project constructs a new east-west freeway extending from Truxtun Avenue to Heath Road. Phase 2 includes a six-lane freeway from Mohawk Street to Allen Road (4.25 miles) with full interchanges at Mohawk Street, Coffee Road, Calloway Drive, a bridge at Jewetta Avenue, and sound walls adjacent to residential areas. The Truxtun Tie-in (Phase 4) will complete the eastern end of the new freeway between Mohawk Street and Truxtun Avenue.  The project also includes a full interchange at Allen Road.  The final phase of the Westside Parkway extends from Allen Road to the Stockdale Highway/Heath Road intersection, and includes two miles of freeway, a bridge at Renfro Road, and sound walls along the adjacent neighborhoods. (See Mohawk Street for information on Phase 1.)

Project Status:
Westside Parkway, from Truxtun Avenue to Allen Road, officially opened to traffic on August 2, 2013. The newly project includes three lanes in each direction with interchanges at Truxtun Avenue, Mohawk Street, Coffee Road, Calloway Drive and Allen Road.

Construction on the final segment between Allen Road and the Stockdale Highway/Heath Road intersection is currently underway, and is expected to be completed in early 2015.
