Dallas Water Utilities is pleased to announce an accelerated schedule for the Walcrest Pump Station & Reservoir project, in spite of COVID-19 and unrelated contractor delays. Heavy construction at the site is winding down, and the new pump station has been operating successfully since December 2019. As we shift our focus from construction to landscaping, we’d like to thank our neighbors for your patience and input throughout this process. Walcrest is one of the largest redevelopment projects in the history of DWU and serves a critical role in the community. Our expectation is that the nearly completed facility will dependably serve Dallas residents for decades to come.
The updated timeline of major project milestones is as follows:
August 2020 – Bid landscaping
Winter 2020-2021 – Construction completed
Spring 2021 – Landscaping begins
Fall 2021 – Landscaping completed
Traffic controls are expected to remain in place for the project’s duration. To view Walcrest’s current traffic control plan, click here: http://walcrest.org/home-page/updated-traffic-control-plan/
