Ennis commissioners gave their approval to the city’s new roads project and a $769,000 contract with Freese and Nichols to oversee the second round of street reconstruction work this decade in the city.
Ennis worked with the company on a $4.2 million street reconstruction effort in 2012-2013, and the city’s next planned road project would be for $6 million in asphalt overlay work beginning in summer 2014. Following that effort is a planned project for $8 million in concrete reconstruction of streets needing the more durable surface to cope with higher traffic and development.
