Street Overlays Scheduled for 2014
  1. Update on FM 1382

UPDATE ON FM 1382 Capacity Improvements - Phase I

This project includes adding two additional inside lanes on FM1382, one lane in each direction, from Straus Road to New Clark Road. There will also be trail pavement for pedestrians and bicycles. Construction activities started in February 2014 and ongoing now; this project is expected to be completed in by June 2015.
Some lane closures will be necessary during construction so drivers are urged to maintain caution and watch for traffic delays when driving in this area.

These improvements are related to the City’s Thoroughfare Plan and Park’s Master Plan. Several other projects are scheduled in different phases and this project is the first phase. The other projects further north involve different funding sources, need requirements, aspects and safety driven issues.

We appreciate your patience and awareness to the traffic control signs and barricades as the project progresses
