Parker County Judge's Office Press Release: Groundbreaking, Naming for Western Loop

April 11, 2011 by Anonymous

Parker County residents are invited to a groundbreaking and roadway naming to celebrate the beginning of construction of the Western Loop on Wednesday, April 20, 4 p.m.
The event will take place at the site where the Loop will intersect with FM 920 (north of Weatherford, west of FM 2421; look for the old Phillips 66 sign). The roadway is a project of the Parker County Transportation Bond Program. The brief ceremony and unveiling of the new name will be hosted by Parker County.
“We are thrilled to be breaking ground on the Western Loop as well as moving forward with all of our transportation bond projects,” Parker County Judge Mark Riley said. “Not only will this improve mobility in and around Weatherford, but it will also have a positive impact on the future economic development of this area.”
The first section of the Western Loop is expected to be complete in fall, 2011. The Western Loop is the largest of the 36 projects comprising the Parker County Transportation Bond Program, which was approved by voters in 2008. The Loop will be completed in five sections – three road segments and two intersections – and the section now under construction will extend south from FM 51 through the FM 920 intersection.
In subsequent project segments, the Western Loop will extend to an intersection with US 180 and further south to an interchange with IH-20. The five segments will form the northwest quadrant of a loop around the City of Weatherford.
The Parker County Transportation Bond program was created to improve transportation infrastructure and facilitate growth and development in Parker County.
