Work begins this summer to turn the bumpy stretch of Sylvan Avenue between Commerce and Singleton into a complete street.

AT&T will begin moving some underground infrastructure that conflicts with drainage in June. During that time, commuters can expect that stretch of Sylvan to be reduced to one lane at times.

Once that work is finished, around August, the city and Dallas County will begin a project to resurface Sylvan and create a four-lane roadway with bike lanes.

That project is expected to take about 15 months, which puts the completion date somewhere around the end of 2017. It takes such a long time because of engineering required under the street on drainage and wastewater upgrades.
