DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION PROJECT UNDER CONSTRUCTION

TXCBDG CONTRACT NO.7217162 - DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION

The City filed a grant application with Texas Department of Agriculture in 2017 to make necessary improvements to the City's Downtown District. Texas Department of Agriculture awarded the City the grant contract for a total project amount of $216,666.00 through the Texas Community Development Block Grant Program which will be used to enhance, beautify, and make the district pedestrian safe and handicap accessible by improving, replacing or installing 1) Sidewalks, 2) ADA Ramps, 3) Crosswalks and Signage, and 4) Decorative Street Lighting.

The construction phase of this project is finally here.  During the next few months, we ask residents, businesses and the general public to be patient and cautious of the construction surrounding the downtown area.  Construction will take place in the following areas:  North corners of SH-132/Miller Street sidewalks and ramps; South corners of SH-132/Pearson sidewalks and ramps; Sidewalk reconstruction along Pearson from SH-132 to 3rd, and along Miller from SH-132 to 3rd; additional lighting will be placed along the downtown corridor; and accessible crosswalks will be placed at SH-132/Miller.
