RM 620 Safety Improvement Projects

Description
In conjunction with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the City is developing a project to improve RM 620 from Deepwood Drive to IH 35. The purpose of the proposed project is to improve safety and enhance mobility in the project area. The project includes a bridge to carry RM 620 traffic over the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and Chisholm Trail Road. In order to maintain access to businesses and residences in the vicinity of the proposed bridge, at-grade local access roads will be constructed between Lake Creek Drive and Chisholm Trail Road. A second bridge is proposed to carry RM 620 traffic over Lake Creek Drive.

Project Phase and Status
The design of the proposed improvements is underway and approximately 60% complete.  The federal environmental review is expected to be approved by June, 2015.  The construction start date is to be determined.
