FM740 road construction to resume Aug. 21 during overnights

HEATH – Road construction on the northern section of FM 740/Horizon Rd. will resume Aug. 21-Sept. 1 overnights, between 8 pm and 7 am.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, the expansion project has experienced construction delays because concrete cannot be poured above a determined temperature and still meet TXDOT standards.

As a result, the contractor for this project , Ed Bell Construction Company, requested and received a temporary waiver to the City of Rockwall and City of Heath noise ordinances to be able to pour concrete during quiet hours, which are the coolest part of each day.

TXDOT says the contractor will make every effort to use low-noise equipment and vehicles, and direct lighting away from residential areas and towards the construction area.

A map of the affected area can be viewed at www.heathtx.com under the FM 740 update section.

For info, contact Kerry Lively, project manager with TxDOT, 972-962-3617.
