TxDOT TO PLACE NEW SIGNAL AT TEXARKANA INTERSECTION

Safety improvements scheduled for Richmond Road and Galleria Oaks Drive

ATLANTA – The intersection of FM 559/Richmond Road and Galleria Oaks in Texarkana is scheduled to receive a traffic signal this summer, according to plans awarded in January by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

The City of Texarkana worked with TxDOT on the project. Improvements will assist motorists turning left onto Richmond Road from Galleria Oaks during busier times of the day.

“Work is scheduled to begin this May, and the project is estimated to take about four months to complete, weather permitting,” said TxDOT Atlanta District Director of Transportation Operations Christina Trowler.   

­­­­­WG Engineering & Construction, LLC of Allen, TX was awarded the contract with a bid of $225,789.76.
