Transportation Commission Approves Proposition 1 Projects
AUSTIN, TX The Texas Transportation Commission approved three roadway improvement projects using Proposition 1 funding. The projects, totaling almost $45 million worth of roadway construction, rehabilitation and restoration, will enhance the safety, mobility and connectivity in the state. Commissioners have now approved final contract awards on 122 of the 200 planned Proposition 1 projects across the state.
"The Commission and TxDOT continue to deliver needed transportation projects that will greatly benefit Texas drivers and the state's economy," said TxDOT Executive Director Lieutenant General Joe Weber, USMC (Ret). "The message from community leaders and local planning organizations, as well as the message sent by voters when they approved Proposition 1 last November, is that transportation concerns must be addressed in a manner that is both efficient and effective. Our efforts continue to prove we hear and understand that message."
These projects include construction of a new interchange on U.S. 84 in Lubbock, widening of FM 121 in Grayson County, and roadway rehabilitation on FM 85 in Ellis County.
