The city has developed this page to provide you with answers to some of the most commonly asked questions and to respond to more specific questions regarding the Glade Road Project:

Q: What is the scope of this project? What’s been decided, and what hasn’t?
A: The Glade Road Project aims to improve the roadway from the western city limits just east of Precinct Line Road to the eastern city limit at Heritage Avenue. In addition to renewing pavement, the project will address intersections in a variety of methods to improve traffic flow.

Q: Why is the city doing this?
A: Our community and region have grown significantly during the past decade, and Glade Road is a primary east-west route through Colleyville. To address the road’s deteriorating condition, as well as capacity concerns, the city is evaluating improvements.

Q: How will you ensure that Glade Road retains its semi-rural feel?
A: The city is seeking a context-sensitive solution, in other words, a solution that is a proper fit for the area through which Glade Road passes.

Q: How many trees are anticipated to be lost during this project?
A: Until final design has been decided and completed, a final number is unknown. The City Council has shown a priority to minimize impact to trees when possible.

Q: How much will this cost? Where is funding coming from?
A: Improvements to the Glade Road Project are being planned and phased on a “pay as you go” basis from existing revenue sources. Funding for the project will be derived from the city’s tax increment finance (TIF) district, as well as perimeter street and impact fees.

(A TIF, or tax increment financing district, is a funding vehicle for cities and TIF partners to use to finance projects and to aid in economic development and infrastructure improvements. It is derived from property taxes collected within the district by TIF partners. In Colleyville, the TIF encompasses most of the Colleyville Boulevard corridor, as well as Glade Road and Cheek-Sparger Road rights-of-way. The original TIF was established in 1998; most of Colleyville’s TIF dollars come from property taxes on commercial properties.)

While final decisions about the design will affect the overall cost of the project, preliminary construction costs are estimated at $17.5 million.

Q: When will construction start/end?
A: Decisions on the phasing of the project are still pending; however, construction could begin as early as 2017 and could extend as far as 2024, depending on the availability of funding.
