The next phase of the Little Fossil Creek Improvements Project will require the closure of Carson St. under State Hwy 121. Beginning Monday, November 13, 2017, Carson St. under SH 121 will remain closed for approximately 10 months to a year.
The northbound (NB) & southbound (SB) Carson St. detours will be as follows:
- Northbound Carson St. traffic will be required to turn right onto the northbound SH 121 frontage road. If NB Carson St. traffic wants to head towards Fort Worth, this traffic can take the “Texas U-Turn” at Minnis Dr. to access the southbound SH 121 frontage road.
- Southbound Carson St. traffic will be required to turn right onto the southbound SH 121 frontage road. If SB Carson St. traffic wants to head towards Richland Hills, Hurst, Arlington, etc., this traffic can take the “Texas U-Turn” at Hickory Dr. to access the northbound SH 121 frontage road.
The frontage roads will be open; however, there may be times during construction where a portion of a frontage road will need to be closed. Advanced notice will be given here when this is scheduled to occur.
