Sixty intersections in Richardson will be improved following council approval May 4 of an interlocal agreement between the city and the North Central Texas Council of Governments.

The Minor Intersection Improvement Program will replace aging vehicle-detection infrastructure at intersections across the city. The $480,000 project will be paid for through a $384,000 federal grant supplemented by a 20% local match of $96,000, according to council documents.


The city is required to submit status reports semiannually until the project is completed. The first report is due each year on April 7 and Oct. 7.
