RUTH MILLICAN COMMUNITY CENTER PARKING LOT

During the Cullum Drive reconstruction project, the Euless Public Works Streets Department replaced a strip of deteriorating asphalt approximately 100’ long x 8‘ wide along the south edge of the parking lot, this parking area had become unstable due to large tree roots growing under the asphalt. At the same time a new parking area was added at the rear of the Community Center, this new area is approximately 90 feet by 60 feet. Also, a new concrete transition was poured between the parking lot and the existing Community Center sign. In addition last week a contractor seal coated the entire parking lot. Lot will be re-striped as soon as weather allows.

The project will construct approximately 2,970 linear feet of the Rio Grande Boulevard extension to Cheek-Sparger Road. Two side streets will connect the southbound SH 121 frontage road with Rio Grande Boulevard. The southbound SH 121 frontage road will be widened to accommodate the entrances to the side streets.
