Hutto ISD is considering a partnership with the city of Hutto to install a traffic light at the intersection of Limmer Loop and Exchange Boulevard, a move that administrators say would enhance traffic control and driver safety.

What you need to know

HISD Associate Superintendent of Operations Henry Gideon provided an update on an agreement being developed between the city and school district that would see the district contribute $250,000 and a small piece of land adjacent to Cottonwood Creek Elementary.

The traffic signal would be maintained by the city, Gideon said, and the small piece of land would be used to help reconfigure the intersection to better serve traffic needs. He said the small piece of land, located in the right-of-way, would otherwise be undeveloped by the district.

If the agreement is approved, Gideon estimated that the project would take about eight to nine months to complete.

What next?

The board of trustees will consider an official proposal for the project at its May 22 meeting, Gideon said.
