White Settlement Road Ribbon Cutting (July 2018)

White Settlement Road curve realignment project focused on improving safety and mobility. The County identified two curves on White Settlement Road approximately one mile east of FM 3325 that were nearly 90-degree turns. They were unsafe, and vehicles would routinely be found in the ditches and neighboring property. The severity of the curves and concerns from local constituents made this project a priority for Commissioner Steve Dugan. He selected this project to be included in the 2016 Parker County Transportation Bond. Voters approved the plan allocating $781,800. This project was a team effort between Parker County, Freese and Nichols, and Jay Mills Construction. The County hired Freese and Nichols to design the project and Jay Mills Construction to build the roadway realignment. The existing narrow road and right-of-way width made traffic control challenging during construction. The team worked closely to develop a solution that avoided making large detours or expensive design alternatives. County selected the use of temporary traffic control signaling to keep the public moving safely through the intersection. The project was completed $175,000 under budget and increased safe driving speed from 10 mph to 35 mph.

FM 1189 / Grindstone Ribbon Cutting (February 2018)

FM 1189 intersection with Grindstone Road in Brock was identified early as a key project for the Bond Program. The intersection is in the heart of the town and majority of traffic is funneled to this one central location. County, TxDOT, and Brock ISD worked together to design, permit, and construct the traffic signal. County designed the signal, constructed roadway improvements on Grindstone Road, and hired the contractor to install the signal. TxDOT supplied the materials and permitted the project. Brock ISD  provided ROW and assisted in coordinating with the public. It was a team effort!
