Why Improvements are Necessary
The bridge has met capacity and traffic often stalls across the bridge onto Loy Lake Road. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is planning to widen the bridge to improve safety and relieve congestion.
Schedule and Cost
Construction began in May 2014 and will last about 12 months. The estimated construction cost for the improvements is $5.6 million.
Ragle Construction Inc. is the contractor. This project is funded through a public-private partnership between the City of Sherman, United Commercial Realty and TxDOT.
Loy Lake Bridge will be widened by two lanes and one left turn lane in each direction.
The City of Sherman will oversee the widening of Loy Lake Road to a four-lane roadway south of Sarah Swamy Drive, which will include construction of a right-turn lane and installation of a traffic signal at that intersection.
