I am pleased to report that on July 8, 2011, TxDOT awarded a contract to Lane Construction (Texas) for $12,873,212.87 for the construction of FM 407 from Chinn Chapel Road to FM 1830, minus the Lantana Curve which is already complete. Like many of the road projects here in Denton County, the winning bid came in below the engineer’s estimate. This bid was 15.4% below the estimate. The project has a 180 day delayed start for utility relocation so the construction will begin right after the first of the year and is estimated to take 24 months.
