The consultant delivered 90% design plans on September 6, 2022, which were reviewed by City staff. Reviewed comments were returned to the consultant on September 21, 2022.  A Teams meeting was held on September 15, 2022  with the TxDOT Area Office Engineer, the project consultant, and City staff to discuss the project status and requirements by TxDOT to move forward with the project. It was determined at the meeting by TxDOT that there should be a Local On-System Agreement (LOSA) between the City and TxDOT for the project. The consultant is currently preparing the documentation for the LOSA to provide to TxDOT, and the Environmental Assessment is still being worked on.
