Thompson Road made dangerous
I really appreciate the widening of FM Road 1884 (Bethel Road) to the south. I know a lot of traffic drives this way every day and I realize, unfortunately, we had a fatality a few years back due to the narrowness of the road.
The construction is in its final stages and last Tuesday TxDOT, in all its wisdom, shut down Bethel Road at Sanchez Creek to Thompson Road. I am sure working with Precinct 4 Parker County Commission the decision to route all east/west traffic over Thompson Road was highly discussed at Commissioners Court and TxDOT district offices? I bet not!
Please county and state governments talk to each other about what roads can handle what type traffic. Thompson Road is/was terrible before the re-route of all traffic from Bethel Road to Tin Top – but now it is a death trap! Please do something about Thompson Road before a death happens. It is too late now to help the construction job – but elected officials need to know what is going on in their area and stop things like this from happening.
A concerned taxpayer and homeowner who lives on Thompson Road.
