traffic light update hwy 276 and fm 1565As many of you know, there will soon be a stop light at the intersection of highway 276 and FM 1565. Months ago steps were taken in the community to solidify the unified desire to see this to fruition. Though the process seems stalled, progress continues. As of recent, the speed limit between the Rockwall county line and the city limits of Quinlan has been reduced to 60 mph. This was done in preparation for the light, a must needed step. The next step is the funding allocation for the construction. As 2016 concludes, the dollars were not there to do so. Therefore, funds available for the project should be available for the early part of 2017. As things change and/or progress, I’ll do my part and keep you informed. In the meantime, be safe.
