Construction will begin on the Rufe Snow / Glenview intersection improvements project on Monday, October 9. The outside lane of southbound Rufe Snow Drive will be closed north and south of the intersection to facilitate the new pavement construction. Please slow down and watch for workers when traveling in this area.
The project consists of widening this portion of Rufe Snow Drive to accommodate a total of 5 lanes (2 northbound lanes, 2 southbound lanes and a dedicated left-turn lane). In addition, signal improvements will be made at the Rufe Snow / Glenview intersection and a new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Glenview Drive and Chapel Park (also the driveway for the IL Texas School). The intent of the project is to provide additional capacity and ease traffic issues in the vicinity of the charter school which opened last year.
City staff will be working with the contractor to take all measures possible to mitigate traffic concerns throughout the project. Construction is anticipated to be complete in February 2018.
