Ribbon Cutting Held to Mark Completion of Strempel Road Project

SEGUIN, Texas - A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday morning, July 17 to mark the completion of the Strempel Road re-construction project.

The 18-month project was designed by TRC and completed by Cox Commercial Construction in July 2019.

The $2.4 million project from State Highway 123 to Business 123 included:

• Complete re-construction of the roadway and concrete pavement
• Street improvements, including a central, continuous turn lane (curbs, gutters and inlets) and a 5’ concrete sidewalk along the south side of the roadway;
• Increased capacity of existing water main between State Highway 123 and Business 123;
• Drainage, water and utility improvements

“Strempel Road is a major connector between State Highway 123 and Business 123. With our Utilities Center and Rave Gears nearby, Strempel Road sees a large amount of heavy truck usage,” said Public Information Officer Jennifer Sourdellia. “Traffic utilizing the roadway is only expected to increase due to future development of land on the north side of the roadway. The new concrete road will be able to withstand the increased volume of traffic and heavy truck traffic,” she said.
