Broadway/Vandergriff Project in Downtown Underway
In a continuing effort to improve safety and upgrade local infrastructure, the City of Carrollton is currently constructing a major drainage enhancement along Vandergriff Drive in Historic Downtown Carrollton. This drainage system connects the system under the Union Station property with the recently completed system constructed as part of the I-35E project. By removing this system constriction, the potential for flooding in this area of Downtown Carrollton is significantly reduced.
Part of this project requires the closing of Broadway Street at the intersection of Vandergriff Drive. Due to the complexity of the underground utilities in this area, the contractor has scheduled approximately two months for this closure. Traffic will be detoured to Elm Street. The parking area north of Vandergriff Drive will be open for the duration of the project with the exception of a couple of spaces adjacent to the construction.
