City staff has received an update from TxDOT on the status of a number of signalization projects in and around Melissa that we wanted to share with all of you.
SH 5 at the Outer Loop and Throckmorton Road: The signals are installed but TxDOT is waiting on the rail line to install their preemption equipment that coordinates the rail crossing with the traffic signals. We do not have a definitive date for completion, but we are being told it should be within the next 30 days or so.
East Melissa Road at FM 2933 (Milrany Lane): TxDOT has authorized a four-way traffic signal at this intersection. While TxDOT is working on the design, they will convert the intersection to an "All-Way" stop condition. This is anticipated to take place in the next four weeks.
