Overview

Glade Road has been an integral part of Colleyville’s road system for many decades, and is an important east-west transportation route for residents, businesses and visitors. The road shares many features, which contribute to Colleyville’s hometown feel, including trees, scenic pastures, and rural stretches.

City Council is reviewing and approving the designing for a majority of the project. Designs for phases 3-4 are not final.

Four Phases

The project and its timeline are divided into four phases.

Glade Road 4 Phases

Phase 1 - Bransford Road to Manning Drive
Scheduled to Begin 2017

Phase 1 features several intersection changes to improve traffic flow along the corridor including a new through lane at Bransford Road, a roundabout at Riverwalk Drive, the realignment of Bedford Road, and lowering Glade Road at Bluebonnet Drive to improve sight distance and remove the need for stop signs. The project will also add a 10' trail on the north side and a 5' sidewalk on the south.

City Council has approved this work and plans are in place to begin work from Bransford Road to Manning Drive in summer 2017.

Phase 3 - Pool Road to Heritage Avenue
Construction slated for 2019

This portion of the roadway would receive new pavement with left-turn lanes where warranted and standard curb and gutters. A right-turn lane on Roberts Road and an additional westbound lane from Heritage Avenue to Roberts Road. A 10' trail on the north side and a 5' sidewalk on the south are also planned.

Phase 4 - Western City Limits to Bransford Road
Work slated for 2023

This phase of construction will include new pavement with left-turn lanes where warranted and standard curb and gutters. A 10' trail on the north side and a 5' sidewalk on the south.

Interim Maintenance
Portions of Glade Road are in need of improvement before planned project work. To maintain a quality driving surface, the City will conduct interim asphalt maintenance throughout the corridor.

This work is scheduled for Saturdays to minimize the impact to motorists.
