SHERMAN, Texas -- The city of Sherman approved two street expansion projects at Monday's council meeting.
Crews will widen Loy Lake Road to four lanes from East Sara Swamy Drive to U.S. Highway 82.
Construction in the $2 million project is to begin next month and finish in 2017.
The city also approved plans for a roundabout on Taylor Street between Grant and FM 1417 to help with traffic control.
"With the population growth we have seen and the amount of people that have moved here they amount of jobs that have been created we are really started seeing a strain on our local transportation system," the City of Sherman's Nate Strauch said.
