Westhill and Nolan River Rd Construction Update

road constuction

Cleburne, Texas – The City of Cleburne started the construction projects affecting Nolan River Rd. on August 17, 2016. The construction began with the installation of a water line that will delineate the boundary between the upper and lower pressure planes for the drinking water system. The contractor, Whitewater Construction, has installed the water line from Surry Place Dr. to Henderson St.


  • Waterline placement is complete
  • Whitewater Construction is currently replacing concrete curbs & approaches while repairing asphalt. This work should take approximately 2 weeks to complete
  • The process of separating the pressure planes will start the 2nd week of August


Scheduled to follow the completion of water line work, the City of Cleburne contracted with Anderson Asphalt & Concrete Paving to provide full depth pavement replacement on Westhill Drive from Main St. to the bridge at Coleman Elementary School, full depth pavement replacement on S. Nolan River Rd. from W. Henderson to Country Club Rd. and patch repairs to Nolan River Rd. north of W. Henderson.   


The new roads consist of 8 inches of treated subgrade and 5-8 inches of asphalt. This is significantly more robust than the previous roadway and we expect that major road construction on South Nolan River Rd. and Westhill Dr. will not be necessary for many years.


  • Paving on Westhill Drive and Nolan River is essentially complete
  • Traffic control is scheduled for removal on Tuesday (7/18/17)
  • Patch repairs to Nolan River Road north of W. Henderson Drive will tentatively start the 1st week of August.  The repairs are tied to federal funding and the city is currently awaiting FEMA authorization to begin
  • Striping and final cleanup will follow shortly thereafter


Some items of significance still remain.  The City of Cleburne has detected a leak in the main water line located on Westhill Drive between Prairie Avenue and S. Walnut Street. The water main leak has created cracks in the new pavement. City staff is working quickly to repair the leak and once repaired this street section will be replaced.


The city and contractor also recognize that there are sections of new roadway that are not acceptable in their current state and will require repair, namely a portion along Nolan River north of Westhill Drive.  These repairs will be underway in the next several weeks.  The city and contractor are committed to ensuring that a quality product is delivered at the end of this project.    


The City of Cleburne recognizes that road construction is an inconvenience to residents and business owners and we thank you for your patience.
