SH-31 Relief Route is Opening Soon

Posted on October 12, 2021 at 4:58 PM by John Shelton

After decades of planning and years of construction, the State Highway 31 Relief Route is expected to be open for traffic soon.   The signals on the east and west ends will flash red beginning next Monday, October 18, 2021.  The road is scheduled to open for traffic on October 21, 2021 (weather permitting).

 

Due to the change in traffic patterns, I encourage all drivers to use caution when approaching intersections along the new route.   Also, please beware of wildlife that may be present along the route.  The speed limit for this stretch of road is 55 mph.

 

The opening of this road will provide a safer and more efficient route for trucks traveling on State Highway 31.  It will also provide relief for drivers on 7th Avenue.  The time and hard work spent on this project over the years is greatly appreciated.

UPDATED MESSAGE - GROUND BREAKING DATE IS RESCHEDULED

Posted on October 11, 2021 at 4:27 PM by John Shelton

***  UPDATE AS OF OCTOBER 11, 2021 ***


Due to weather, this event has been rescheduled for 3:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 20, 2021.

 

 

 

One of the most important roles of government is economic development.  A strong economic development program can create an environment that fosters and supports new business development while nurturing existing employers.  

 

One of the companies that has been a long-time part of the Corsicana economy is Corsicana Mattress.  In 1971, the Moran family started Tipton Manufacturing, which later became Corsicana Bedding and then Corsicana Mattress.  This year marks the 50th anniversary of Corsicana Mattress.  The company will begin the next 50 years by breaking ground on a new, world-class manufacturing facility on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 3:00 p.m.  The new 376,000 square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility will be the first building in the I-45 Industrial Park.  

 

The new facility will be a great addition to the community.  I hope you will join me in celebrating this milestone with Corsicana Mattress.
