FORNEY, Texas — The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has warranted a traffic signal at the intersection of Farm-to-Market (FM) 548 and Gateway Boulevard.

A traffic and signal study was conducted at the intersection and TxDOT recently notified the City of Forney they have warranted the traffic signal, Assistant City Manager Wendle Medford told the Forney City Council on Tuesday night.

Medford says the city is now awaiting additional information from the state on when construction will begin on the signal and its proposed implementation date.
