Roads set to open

August 20, 2014 by Phil Major

If all goes according to plan, the construction barricades along FM 1187 and Aledo Trail should come down between 3-4 p.m. today (Wednesday, Aug. 20).

Shortly after noon, the southbound lanes were opened south of Bailey Ranch Road.

"Our goal was to have this open by the time school opened, and we are pleased about that," said Joel Kertok, project coordinator with the Parker County judge's office. Classes begin Monday.

There will be work along the roadways continuing for a few weeks, such as landscaping and sidewalks, which could result in some temporary lane closures, he said.

"It's an exciting day," Kertok said. "We know it has been a challenge."
