Freese and Nichols is constructing improvements on Bethel and Coppell Roads in Coppell, including paving reconstruction, streetscape, implementation of a storm drain system and water lines, construction of a new bridge over Grapevine Creek for the new road and raising the new bridge slightly relative to the existing one. The new bridge replaces a two-lane pan-type bridge with a three-span bridge supported on six Type C girders, six-foot-wide sidewalks on each side and concrete ornamental railing/traffic barriers keeping with the appearance of the existing rails or fencing in the neighborhood.
The water lines will be replaced, and the existing water mains will be abandoned for a new 16-inch water main. An underground storm sewer system will be installed, where needed, to facilitate drainage of the ROW and surrounding properties.
The project encompasses historic Old Town Coppell and requires various streetscape elements. Freese and Nichols designed wide sidewalks, angled parking, landscaped corners, crosswalks with special paving and street lighting.
