Asphalt Road Projects

Public Works staff currently estimates a delay of 12 to 18 month for Asphalt Road Projects given the size and scope of weather related damage. We humbly seek your patience as we progress through these challenges and wish to assure the citizens that our commitment to safety is unwavering. We encourage residents to report any conditions that compromise safety or create a dangerous situation. Citizens can call the Public Works office at 972-548-3700 or log a service request here on our website to report an issue.

We apologize for the inconvenience and pledge that the County will resume road paving projects as soon as practical. In the meantime, be sure to check the County Road Paving Program webpage for any updates.
