At any rate, the date is ...
Work will get started around 8 in the morning and continue until they're all finished. We know you want to know what this means for you and more details, so here we go.
The summer heat and rainy weather didn’t keep us from moving forward with the $63.8 million project to build a new overpass at Woodlake Parkway, upgrade the intersections and signals, reconfigure the entrance and exit ramps and convert the frontage roads to one-way. Work began fall 2016 and is expected to wrap up mid-2019. Texas Sterling Construction is the contractor and we have CEC managing and inspecting the work.
You can read all the details about the project here.
All about the One-Way Frontage Roads
This is a HUGE improvement in safety. Studies show there’s a significant reduction in the number, type, and severity of crashes on one-way frontage roads:
- They reduce fatal and injury crashes by 57 percent
- They reduce serious head-on and angle crashes by 80-96 percent
- They reduce intersection crashes by 77-85 percent
Another bit of info
By the way… we’re saving the best for last! The conversion has been accelerated by eight months to expedite delivery of the project.
We know you love us for it. We love y'all, too.
