TxDOT confirms signal planned for SH 29/Bronco


Christopher Bishop with the Texas Department of Transportation confirmed that a traffic signal is being planned for the intersection of State Highway 29 and Bronco Boulevard, at the entrance to Sundance Estates.

A study of the intersection was conducted last year, according to Bishop, and the intersection met three of the 14 possible warrants for signalization, all three regarding traffic volumes and delays.

The signal is currently being designed and is expected to go out for bid as part of a signal construction contract to be awarded in May 2019. Once the bid is awarded, the contractor will have 300 days to complete work on all signals included in the contract, so work on the signal at State Highway 29 and Bronco Boulevard is expected to be between the summer of 2019 and spring of 2020.

No cost estimate was available for the project as it is in the design phase.
