As the holidays approach, Bill Bradford Road’s eastbound lane will be opened from Gilmer Street to Industrial Blvd giving drivers a more direct path to stores and shops located along that roadway. City Manager Marc Maxwell told KSST News Friday morning that the roadway will allow shoppers better access as the shopping season opens next Friday. He stated Bill Bradford Road should be completed in early February, 2017.
Work will continue on the westbound side of the roadway and a portion of that roadway will be closed. Water, sewer and utility improvements are complete. Only the concrete work remains.
As the City of Sulphur Springs nears completion of their five year plan for improvement of specific streets, work begins on a second five year plan that will specify additional streets for improvement. City Manager Marc Maxwell said that some streets need to be sealed but other streets need a total rework.
Those streets chose for the next five year plan will complement a larger planning process that will develop a new comprehensive plan for the city. Maxwell stated many will be involved in developing the new comprehensive plan.
