When will the lanes from 720 to 380 start to be expanded. I understand that the ROW is in the process, but when will work actually begin?

The SH 289 Widening project is being designed, managed and constructed by TxDOT. The latest information that we have from TxDOT is that the land needed to widen the road is approximately 65% acquired. Some property must be obtained through emminent domain proceedings which adds extra time. Utilities must also be relocated outside of the widened road before construction begins. At this time, actual road construction is expected to begin in mid-2008. Utility relocations will begin as soon as the state has the right to enter all properties - which should be later this year.
