From the Parker County Judge’s Office
Parker County residents will soon have access from FM 51, north of Weatherford, to US 180 west of Weatherford, on the Ric Williamson Memorial Highway (RWMH), a project of the Parker County Transportation Bond Program.

A ribbon cutting at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13. on the RWMH just north of the US 180 intersection, will celebrate the opening of Phase 2 of the project, which is from FM 920 to US 180 and the Texas Department of Transportation’s completion of the US 180 intersection. Phase 1 from FM 51 to FM 920 opened in January of 2012.

“It will be a tremendous achievement and something we can all be proud of,” Parker County Judge Mark Riley said. “Through partnerships we have been able to achieve our goals and we continue to complete the projects of our bond program in a timely manner and under budget.”

TxDOT Fort Worth District Engineer Maribel Chavez also highlighted the strength of partnerships in getting the project completed.

“Cooperation between Parker County and TxDOT led to the development and completion of this project that will improve mobility and safety in an area that will see continued and sustained growth,” Chavez said.

Riley said his greatest thanks go to the residents of Parker County who supported the 2008 Transportation Bond Program by passing it with approximately 60 percent of the vote in the November 2008 general election.

Mr. Manning said, “For three decades, being an educator has been the professional passion of my life. I believe education is the gateway for every child to achieve their full promise as a human being, and I am proud to have had the opportunity to influence the lives of children and those who work with children.”

AISD School Board President Bobby Rigues noted that Mr. Manning’s contract was unanimously approved for two additional years at the January school board meeting. “He has proven to be an outstanding leader and superintendent for Aledo ISD,” Rigues said. “His dedication to this district and his leadership abilities will be greatly missed by many, yet we wish him well.”
