Traffic lights on FM148 at the Interstate Highway 20 and Spur 557 off-ramps and frontage roads, and at Crossroads Parkway are on the agenda Tuesday for members of the Terrell City Council to consider when they meet in regular session. Also, the council will consider a resolution calling the regular municipal election for two seats on the council to be held on May 9th. The two expiring terms are for Place 2, currently held by Tommy Spencer, and Place 4, held by Charles Whitaker, the current Deputy Mayor Pro Tem.
Lighting along the new State Highway 34 from Airport Road to the city limit north of Rose Street could be in place by the end of October if the Terrell City Council approves an agreement for professional services with Freese and Nichols, Inc., which provides for professional services for the design and construction of the lighting in an amount not to exceed $116,100. The cost of the lighting will be covered in part by a Statewide Transportation Enhancement Program grant, with the city paying the remaining costs. Advertising for bids for the construction of the lights is projected to be in May of this year.
Drivers on eastbound and westbound frontage roads along U. S. Hwy 175 in Kaufman will experience delays as portions of both frontage roads will be closed east of the existing State Highway 34 as the first phase of the construction of the State Highway 34 bypass project begins, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. Those frontage roads will re-open in about one year, with the entire project completed in early 2017.
Attorney John Wright's request for a continuance of Charles Brownlow Jr.'s capital murder trial was denied by Judge B. Michael Chitty late last week, so the trial will move foreward with a scheduled start in July of this year. Wright requested the delay, until January of next year, to allow time to develop an adequate defense for Brownlow, who is accused of killing five people in Terrell in 2013.
And, this reminder, that Terrell Independent School District students have a holiday both today and tomorrow as both days are scheduled staff development days.
