Our transportation team, led by Chris Bosco, helped the County design Aledo Trail as an innovative solution: One-way streets function as a roundabout, with separate northbound and southbound railroad crossings. This provides two lanes of traffic in each direction through downtown, while increasing safety for autos and pedestrians. It was also the most cost-effective of the options considered.

Freese and Nichols is managing the entire $117 million Parker County Transportation Bond Program, which involves design, coordination and construction of more than two dozen projects. Program Manager is Morgan McIlwain, Program Management, Fort Worth.
