Highway ribbon cutting set Feb. 13

February 8, 2013 by Randy Keck

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.

“I know road construction can be tough to deal with and trying on our patience, but the people of Parker County have handled it well,” Riley said. “I believe our community is able to see the big picture and the improvements in mobility, amongst other things, these new roads will bring.”

Overall completion date is expected to be 2014.
