Rhea/Call Field/ Lawrence Road Realignment Project

The Wichita Falls City Council is set to take another step in a major road project.

The council will meet in a Special Session on Tuesday to award the construction bid to the company working on the realignment of one of the busiest intersections in Wichita Falls.

The council is expected to award the bid of just over $1.2 million to Duke Construction Company.

If the awarding bid is finalized, Duke construction will help the city realign the intersections of Call Field, Lawrence, and Rhea Roads. The project will eliminate one of the traffic lights to allow Lawrence Rd. flow right through.

The old "Strategic Realtors" building has already been demolished to make room for the new intersection.

Revenue from the Tax Increment Financing Zone #2 and the 4B Sales Tax Corporation will pay for that project over a 20 year period.

City officials say this project will make traffic run much smoother.

Newschannel six will be at Tuesday's meeting to bring you the very latest information.
