TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Westfield Boulevard Extension to Airport Road Now Open

Drivers in West Temple can now enjoy the entire length of the new Westfield Boulevard between West Adams Avenue and Airport Road, after an extension of the new four-lane divided roadway from Prairie View Road opened to the public on Thursday, October 17.
 
“With the explosion of redevelopment in West Temple, this new collector will serve to increase mobility and decrease travel times for our residents,” said Richard Wilson, the City’s Engineer. “The new road will also provide neighborhoods in the area with more points of access.”
 
As an essential piece of the City of Temple’s Transportation Capital Improvement Plan, the Westfield Boulevard extension now allows drivers to access Airport Road from Prairie View Road. In addition to the roadway extension, the project included an extension of water utilities, the addition of sidewalks as well as a new traffic signal at Airport Road.
