County to re-install stop signs on LCR 462

Limestone County commissioners court made initial plans at Monday’s meeting to install stop signs on LCR 462, between Mexia and Groesbeck. They also got an offer they couldn’t refuse to double the county’s Internet bandwidth.
LCR 462 is about 3 miles south of Mexia and east of Limestone County Airport, between Hwy. 14 and Hwy. 39. The stop signs would be at its intersection with LCR 460, which is the road that leads to the landfill.
“A long time ago there used to be some there, but kids tore them down,” said Commissioner Jerry Allen.
Because the change involves a traffic control device, the court must post notices and hold a public hearing, County Judge Daniel Burkeen noted.
The commissioners authorized County Engineer Ted Kantor to post notices, which he said he would place in both The Mexia News and The Groesbeck Journal.
“It has to be between eight and 30 days (before),” he told the court.
He suggested the public hearing be held during December’s second meeting.
“I don’t think anyone will oppose it,” Kantor said.
“They definitely need to be there,” Allen said of the stop signs.
The public hearing will be Dec. 23 at 9:30 a.m.
