Improvements to Cheek-Sparger Road are on the horizon! The City of Colleyville is heading up this project and while there are no definitive start dates yet, here’s what’s to come:
Between the Bedford Road and Heritage Avenue intersections, Cheek-Sparger Road will be expanded from two lanes to three. There will be one lane for eastbound traffic and one for westbound vehicles, separated by a turn lane in the middle. This keeps the two-lane configuration you are used to today, while allowing for easier turning capabilities and better traffic flow. The future Cheek-Sparger still needs to be designed and could include a drainage system, five-foot-wide sidewalk on the north side, and a 10-foot-wide trail on the south side of the road. Ultimate design will include opportunity for public input.
The City of Colleyville will most likely select and award the design work an engineering firm this 2022-2023 Fiscal Year. The design will take about a year to complete, and then construction will take around two years, from start to finish, because it is such a big project.
The project was included in the voter-approved 2021 Tarrant County bond package, which means the County is funding half of the project. The remaining $13 million in costs will be split between Colleyville and Bedford. The Cities of Colleyville and Bedford continue to pursue grant funding for their portion of the project to minimize the cost to taxpayers.
