CIP Construction Update – Dennis Bailey and Rabbit Ridge


The City is reconstructing a portion of Dennis Bailey and Rabbit Ridge. The project includes the reconstruction of Dennis Bailey from FM-549 to Rabbit Ridge and the section of Rabbit Ridge adjacent to the Ridge Lakes Addition (location map above).
Start Date:
The project has started.
Completion Time:
Estimated completion time is 7 months (weather permitting).

Construction Process

  • Dennis Bailey will be a 31-foot wide, 2 lane concrete residential street with curb and gutter.
  • Rabbit Ridge will be a 24-foot wide, 2 lane concrete roadway with curb and gutter on one side (½ of a future 48-foot, 4-lane undivided roadway).
  • During construction, Dennis Bailey and Rabbit Ridge, along the Ridge Lakes Subdivision, will be reduced to one-way traffic, from FM-549 towards FM-550. Rabbit Ridge and Dennis Bailey will be signed for “local traffic only”. With this revision, it is anticipated that the construction time will be reduced by 2 months.
  • The last week of November, Rabbit Ridge, from FM-550 towards Dennis Bailey, will be closed to through traffic. It is anticipated to be closed to through traffic for approximately 5 to 6 months.

The contractor for the project is Ed Bell Construction.
