Project to improve US 80 frontage roads

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE; March 1, 2006

Construction on a project to improve frontage roads along US 80, from Beltline Road to SH 352 (Collins Road), began this week in east Dallas County. The $6.9 million dollar project will reconstruct the frontage roads and relocate an exit ramp on eastbound US 80 near Collins Road.

The project is located in both the cities of Mesquite and Sunnyvale and road improvements are expected to serve the communities for a long time, said Gary Moonshower, P.E., Texas Department of Transportationís Southeast Dallas County area engineer.

"The project is going to greatly improve the ramp situation. Right now, the eastbound exit is short and sharp. The new ramp will allow for better traffic flow."

During construction, frontage road traffic will be reduced to one-lane in each direction. The project should take about 19 months for contractor, Texas Sterling Construction, L.P. of Houston, to complete.
