Blue Mound Road reconstruction begins in 2019

Work is scheduled to begin early next year on FM 156/Blue Mound Road, modernizing the once-rural roadway to meet urban needs.

The project will run from U.S. Highway 81/287 to McLeroy Boulevard/Watauga Road. The project will reconstruct and widen the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane road with a raised median and left-turn bays at major cross-street intersections. Other improvements include sidewalks separated from the roadway and shared-use outside lanes to accommodate bicyclists.

The $48.6 million project was awarded to Webber LLC of Houston. Work will continue through 2022.

Currently, the Texas Department of Public Safety is working with utility companies on their relocation plans.


I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 32 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard.I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".Contact me directly at lee@leeeverton.com for scheduling information.
