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. Local access will also be maintained in this area. You can keep up with the status of relocating the Stagecoach Inn here.

Project Phase and Status
The design of the proposed improvements is underway and 100 percent PS&E (Plans, Specifications, and Estimates) documents are being prepared.  The federal environmental review is complete and approval has been acquired. The right-of-way acquisition process is ongoing. Utility relocations will follow as right-of-way is acquired. The project will be bid by TxDOT in April 2019 with an expected construction duration of 27-30 months.
