Smith County Road Project Underway

Smith County began work on Wood Springs Road in Lindale on Monday, May 4, 2020.

A portion of Wood Springs Road, also known as County Road 463, is closed to traffic.

Smith County Engineer Frank Davis said Smith County and the City of Lindale are partnering on the Road Bond Project through an interlocal agreement because portions of the road lie in Smith County’s Precinct 3, while other portions are inside the city limits of Lindale.

The road will be worked on from its intersection with CR 474, and will continue to its intersection with Perryman Road. The project will include reworking, repaving and widening the road; extending a box culvert; installation of new box culverts and adding curb and gutter. A sidewalk will also be added along its east side to accommodate the Lindale Junior High School.

Baker & Company Construction, of Tyler, is the contractor on the project, which is expected to last about a year. Davis said the work in front of the junior high school, as well as the installation of cross culverts in two locations, is expected to be completed before school starts in August.
