June 10, 2019 — Due to Old Goforth Road construction, the intersection of Green Meadows Lane and Old Goforth will be closed starting June 13 to permit the reconstruction of the intersection. The intersection at Tom Green School Road/Calomel Trail and Old Goforth will also be closed at this time. This is being done to allow the contractor to complete as much work as possible during the summer break to minimize disruptions at the beginning of school. The construction will last approximately through August.
Meanwhile, both lanes of Old Goforth Road remain closed between FM 2001 and Tom Green School Road. The southbound lane of Old Goforth is open between Tom Green School Road and Hillside Terrace. Northbound Old Goforth is closed between FM 2001 and Hillside Terrace. The closures will last through approximately August. The contractor is anticipating to have the road reopened by the time school starts in August, but the overall project will not be finished until October. The road improvement project is part of the bond package passed in 2014.
The general scope of work for this project includes:
· Dedicated left and right turn lanes at Tom Green Elementary
· Intersection safety improvements at FM 2001
· Increase pedestrian connectivity between subdivisions and school
· Aesthetic enhancements
