Missile Road Construction Update

Due to the road construction to repair intersection of Missile Road and Avenue D/E, 20 MPH reduced speed limits will be erected 1000 linear feet in all directions from the intersection. This creates a safer condition for both construction workers and traffic in this area. Complete intersection repair will be accomplished in multiple phases, estimated completion 1 August 2016.


Drivers are asked to please respect barricades and exercise caution while driving around the construction area.  This project will be completed as quickly and as safely as possible, and we ask for your patience and cooperation during the construction period.


For questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Bobby Castleman by phone at (940) 676-7470 or email at
