Designs to widen Celina’s Coit Road are being updated before its fall groundbreaking.

The gist

Celina City Council members amended a services contract to widen Coit Road from two lanes to four by $78,500 to extend the project’s scope during a May 14 meeting.

The original contract was approved in March 2022 and would have ended the four-lane road at just north of Overlook Court, according to meeting documents.

Council’s amendment means the four-lane road will end at Choate Parkway once it is built.

The project’s budget is now $867,400 and is being paid for by bond funds, according to meeting documents.

Stay tuned

Final designs for the road are expected to finish in August, according to the city’s capital improvement project dashboard. Construction should then start in October, according to the dashboard.
