Thank you to all of those who attended the recent Precinct 3 task force meeting at Lewisville City Hall on May 20.

We also would like to thank the city for providing a barbecue lunch for us. It was delicious.

Topping our project update was the announcement that we are expecting a ribbon-cutting this summer to commemorate the completion of the Point Vista Road/Turbeville Road improvements in Hickory Creek.

This project, which started last February, is expected to be finished in June. The improvements include reconstruction of Point Vista as a three-lane, undivided concrete road and Turbeville as a four-lane, divided concrete road.

We also heard about plans to build a four-lane, divided road for Corporate Drive from Railroad Street to FM2281. Also included is complete construction of a railroad underpass and railroad bridge at FM544. The project, divided into six segments, is not expected to begin until May 2020.

Talks are continuing on the reconstruction of Shady Shores Road to elevate it out of the flood plain and improve drainage. The project is funded, and plans are underway to begin preliminary work, with construction not slated until 2021.

Other future projects include reconstruction of the interchange and existing frontage roads at Interstate 35E and FM1171; reconstruction of the interchange and frontage roads at I-35E and State Highway 121 Business; and reconstruction of the interchange and frontage roads at I-35E and Corporate.
