New Safety Lighting to be installed

 New safety lighting is scheduled to be installed at eleven area highway intersections, according to plans awarded in January by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“The nighttime lighting systems to be installed are safety enhancements that will provide LED lighting to increase visibility and awareness of the intersection,” said TxDOT Atlanta District Director of Transportation Operations Christina Trowler.

WG Engineering & Construction, LLC of Allen, TX was awarded the contract with a bid of $1,397,827.97.
