After nearly three years of construction, Stacy Road approaches completion. Although TxDot has yet to release an official completion date, according to Fairview Town Engineer James Chancellor, it is “safe to say” construction will be finished by May. 

Over the last few years, Stacy Road has overgone multiple changes including the addition of new traffic signals, pedestrian sidewalks and road lanes.

“Stacy Road is being widened from two lanes to four lanes from SH5 to FM138,” Chancellor said. “The median is being constructed extra wide to provide room for an ultimate six lanes of traffic as demand increases.” 

Chancellor does not anticipate Stacy Road will experience any more delays in construction.

“The only remaining delays would be weather related such as below freezing temperatures or rainfall,” Chancellor said.

Residents near Stacy are glad the long construction project will be finished soon.

“It’ll be a really big relief when it’s done,” senior Carlo Yundt-Pacheco said. “It’s just going to be a lot safer, and it’ll be faster going down Stacy.”

Chancellor expects the construction changes to increase efficiency and safety on Stacy Road.

“Stacy Road will have much less delay time while driving from FM1378 to SH5,” Chancellor said. “There will be numerous left turning lanes for safer turns. The wide median will also allow drivers a safe place to cross Stacy Road while waiting for an opening in traffic.”
