Description  

The Southwest Taylor Improvements include projects located near the new Samsung factory and are part of the County’s Long-Range Transportation Plan, which is intended to plan for current and future growth by maintaining a high level of safety, mobility, and quality of life for residents and communities.

CR 401 Reconstruction and Extension - This project will tie CR 401 into US 79 and expand the existing two-lane CR 401 to a four-lane roadway to provide more capacity for vehicles to safely travel in the area. The project also includes plans for installing a traffic signal at the intersection.

CR 404 and FM 973 Improvement Project - This project includes work at the intersection of FM 973 and CR 404 which will widen both roads to be three lanes; one lane in each direction with a center turn lane. The project also includes plans for installing a traffic signal at the intersection when traffic warrants.

Samsung Highway - This project will construct a four-lane road to reduce curves on CR 404 and increase safety. The roadway will connect FM 3349 to FM 973. The interim roadway will be completed in segments. Segment 1 will connect CR 404 to FM 973 and Segment 2 will connect FM 3349 to CR 404.

During this operation, the northbound lane will be closed and then the southbound lane will be closed as the work progresses from one side of FM 973 to the other side. This will be from CR 404 to the new Samsung Highway south of the Samsung site. A one-way flagging operation with two flaggers and a pilot car will be used.
