On Friday, a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrated the completion of the $3.4 million Main Street Rehabilitation Project in Lake Dallas and Hickory Creek, according to a press release.
Construction began on Main Street in May 2016 and funding for the project came from 2008 bonds out of Denton County Precinct 3. Now officially open, the project encompasses 1.2 miles of improvements. Workers reconstructed the existing two-lane asphalt roadway to a two-lane concrete facility from Shady Shores Road to Westlake Park in eastern Hickory Creek.
“We had to get a little creative to find the dollars to fund the project, but we were able to take money from the savings of other Precinct 3 projects and apply to Main Street,” said Denton County Commissioner Bobbie Mitchell, who represents Precinct 3, said in a press release. “It’s a project that was long overdue and will benefit all the Lake Cities communities.”
The project was designed and engineered by Halff Associates and constructed by Quality Excavation, according to the release.
