The cities of Bedford, Euless and Colleyville will work with Tarrant County to install a traffic signal at the intersection of Heritage Avenue and Cheek Sparger Road—a point at which city limits meet.
An interlocal agreement specifying project details was approved during the March 12 Tarrant County Commissioners Court meeting. Including design and construction, costs should not exceed $275,000 total, according to the agreement.
Colleyville and Bedford staff will review design plans and approve the placement of equipment at their respective rights of way, according to the agreement. Euless will manage financial and construction administration.
A private developer responsible for the nearby Trinity Union apartment complex will also be investing $50,000 into the project, Precinct 3 County Commissioner Gary Fickes said.
The entities plan to share the remaining cost evenly, according to the agreement.
Fickes said this project will be part of a larger goal to improve safety and facilitate traffic at that intersection, especially as the area continues to see growth and development.
“We hope to have the design work completed and be ready to begin installation by late this year,” Euless City Manager Loretta Getchell wrote in an email response. “We would expect installation and construction to be complete by early summer 2020.”
