Melissa to add traffic signal on SH 121

Staff reports
TxDOT installs new traffic light in Melissa.

Melissa city officials have moved to the design phase of a new traffic light that will be located at the intersection of State Highway 121 and Liberty Way.  The new signal was approved by the city council last month due to increased residential traffic in the area as well as the grown of the Melissa Park Village development. 

In order to get an additional signal on the state highway, Melissa first had to get approval from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).  The state engineers approved the request after conducting traffic count studies and taking into account residential and commercial growth in the area. 

Local engineering firm EST, Inc. is working with the city on the design, procurement and construction management process.  A construction schedule will be released after the project is put out for bid.
