Hilltop Road Improvements and Detour

Dear Resident,

Denton County Precinct 4 (Commissioner Eads), wants to let you know about an important safety improvement project adjacent to Lantana. The single span bridge crosses the Loving Branch Tributary (located 0.4 miles north of FM 407 near Lantana) and is roughly halfway between Tudor Lane and Whitmore Road, which is just west of Magnolia Addition. The Hilltop Road Bridge needs repair based on recent inspections. TxDOT and Denton County will partner financially with TxDOT paying 75%.
Our partners at TxDOT recently awarded the $345,670 project to Coppell Construction. On September 5, 2017, we will close the bridge to traffic. Residents of Lantana will have access to Springcreek Drive from Hilltop Road. The anticipated completion of the construction is January 2018.
Although TxDOT will be managing the project, Denton County has already notified DISD bus department as well as local public safety agents. Our Denton County Precinct 4 staff is available to answer questions and to serve as your liaison with TxDOT for any issues you may encounter throughout construction. Should you need assistance, please contact us at 972-434-3960, and we will help in any way we can.

For the safety of the workers and fellow drivers, we encourage all motorists to use extreme caution while driving near this project. During the road closure traffic will be rerouted along FM 1830 and Hilltop Rd. We appreciate your patience and understanding through this process and thank you for supporting our capable partners at TxDOT as they work to improve the safety of this roadway for our residents and traveling public.

Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to a successful project.
