We need your support!!!

As you all know Union Pacific is busy building their new project (The Brazos Yard) which be one of the highest capacity yards in their 23 state network. The yard will have the capacity to switch 1300 rail cars per day, with 7 tracks. With this surge in trains there are legitimate concerns about travel delays and congestion on FM 50. It will be harder for staff, parents and community members to get across the tracks and will cause traffic problems.  To solve this issue TXDot is in the beginning stages of planning an overpass at the track closet to Mumford!

In order to  get this approved WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!  There will be an Open House Meeting for all those that will be affected by these traffic issues.  There will be 2 plans available for you to look at, however the one that requires fewer acres seems to be the best option.  Stop in and show your support, the meeting is on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 3:00 – 6:30.  It is held in the Mustang Room and you can come and go at your convenience.  Please see the link for details on the Open House Meeting about the new overpass!
