Denton County voters passed proposition A with 74% approval. It authorizes $650 million for roads, and $30 million is earmarked for environmental studies for the Denton County Outer Loop, which will extend the Collin County Loop westward from the Collin/Denton county line to I-35.

The $30 million allocated to the Outer Loop would help fund environmental studies to move the project forward, Polster said. Denton County is using federal funds to build the road, making the study mandatory, he said.

“The environmental clearance ... is just getting the alignment established and getting it environmentally cleared so that we can protect the corridor from future development,” Polster said.

The process is expected to take about three years, but it could go as long as five years, he said. Following this phase, Denton County crews would move to right-of-way acquisition and utility relocations.

Another budget-busting bid opening, this time for IH-30 in Rockwall county.
http://www.dot.state.tx.us/insdtdot/orgchart/cmd/cserve/bidtab/11023001.htm

I was expecting Williams to bid low since they won the contract on the adjacent section and they will already be mobilized. But apparently they were not really interested in the job since they bid super high.
Using a length of 9.2 miles (SH 205 to county line), this is $55 million per mile.

County:   ROCKWALL   Let Date:   11/02/22
Type:   GRADING,ACP,STRS,SIGNING,PAVEMENT   Seq No:   3001
Time:   0 X   Project ID:   F 2023(166)
Highway:   IH 30   Contract #:   11223001
Length:   10.390   CCSJ:   0009-12-219
Limits:   
From:   SH205   Check:   $100,000
To:   WEST OF FM2642 (HUNT C/L)   Misc Cost:   
Estimate   $413,700,705.24   % Over/Under   Company

Bidder 3   $617,891,611.64   +49.36%   WILLIAMS BROTHERS CONSTRUCTION CO., INC.

The TxDOT commission is deferring a decision on the award of this contract until December. According to the video discussion, the delay will allow the district to more carefully evaluate the bid.

Discussion is at 37 minutes  https://txdot.new.swagit.com/videos/189771

At today's commission meeting, the low bid was rejected and the project will be rebid later in fiscal year 2023 after design changes are made.

GSW did a little update and posted some new shots of I-30 near the upcoming TX-360 stack interchange. https://goo.gl/maps/H6UcEBB37rdyZF2C8

I wonder if we could name that interchange the Six Flags interchange due to its proximity to Six Flags Over Texas?
