Are there any plans to Install Traffic Lights on Hickory and Preston?

We currently have 10 traffic signals under design and 3 traffic signals are under construction.

We rank intersections once per year to establish the need for new traffic signals based on federal and state warrants and safety.

This year, Preston and Hickory ranked in the top 10 of 50 intersections studied which are not under design or construction.

I would expect Preston and Hickory to be signalized within the next 1-3 years. Land development served by this signal could also accelerate the need for a traffic signal.

Also, keep in mind that Preston Road is SH 289 and that TxDOT authorizes all traffic signals on state highways.
