Each Thursday City staff attends the project meeting for the FM 407 reconstruction project. The following information was provided; TX DOT will order signs for each of the business entrances located along the FM 407 project, the signs will read “Business Entrance”. The contractor will be installing their concrete batch plant on the property located along FM 2499 at the railroad crossing. The batch plant is permitted by the TCEQ, and they anticipate a mid September for delivery of the plant. At the intersection of Barnett and FM 407, TXDOT will be reconstructing approximately 200 feet of Barnett to the north due to vertical grade difference. They will be doing half of the roadway at a time, and there will be a concentrated effort to construct Barnett utilizing weekends in an attempt to make the August 27th school start date. Project is on target with current schedule that was shared last month. Concrete paving is scheduled for November through December, 2012 for the new westbound driving lanes.
