Following an Argyle Independent School District (AISD) board meeting on Monday, September 14, the Town of Argyle and AISD came to an agreement on the purchase of property at Crawford Road and John Paine Road.
This purchase effectively removes the last remaining impediment for the Town to move forward with the reconstruction of Crawford Road. The planned improvements have a value of $87,000, which will directly benefit AISD families by improving safety along the thoroughfare and easing traffic congestion.
“We would like to thank AISD for recognizing the value of road improvement,” said Rich Olson, Town Administrator. “We appreciate our partnership with Denton County, the City of Denton, and now AISD in making this $4 million project a reality”.
The Town will advertise for bids on September 22 and 25, 2020 with bid openings on October 13, 2020. Town Council should be able to consider awarding the contract at their October 19, 2020 meeting. Actual construction on the project is expected to begin on November 9, 2020.
