Rockwall, TX-June 18, 2024 – The Rockwall County Commissioners Court was presented with the recommendations of four engineering and design firms to lead engineering services for the four road projects approved in the 2021 Rockwall County Road Bond Program.

WSB Engineering would lead Project 1 which consists of widening FM 549 from FM 740 to SH 205 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway for 3.6 miles.

Project 2 was awarded to Bridgefarmer & Associates. The proposed improvements are on Horizon Road/Village Drive from FM 740/Ridge Road to the Dallas, Garland & Northeastern Railroad tracks consisting of the widening of the two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway with sidewalks and reconstruction of the Village Drive Bridge.

Teague Nall and Perkins (TNP) received Project 3 which covers just over half a mile of FM 550 from south of SH 205 to north of Meadowcreek. A right turn lane will be added from northbound FM 550 to eastbound SH 205 and curve realignment is needed from Meadowpark to north of Meadowcreek.

Project 4 would go to Kimley-Horn. The proposed improvements on Ben Payne Road from IH 30 to SH 66 include widening the two-lane roadway to four lanes.

The engineering and design firms, in no particular order, of OTHON, Lamb-Star, Pape-Dawson, Consor, and Freese & Nichols were pre-qualified by the Court for future similar projects.
