The infrastructure project would relocate the water park's entrance north and align with Town Center Drive, per the release. The scope of the project also includes new signalization, deceleration lanes and sidewalks along FM 685, per the release.
“Improvements to the PCDC property are needed to provide safer and easier access for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and also [to] set the stage for a new year-round restaurant to be introduced in 2021 by Typhoon Texas,” PCDC Executive Director Amy Madison said in the release. “The park continues to provide jobs for young adults [and] recreation for the region and generates sales tax on-site and in area retail establishments.”
Per the agreement, Cox Construction must complete the project within 150 calendar days following the start of construction. According to the release, Madison said the project is expected to be complete prior to the park's reopening in May.
