Redlight Traffic Signal with Turn Signals at the Intersection of FM 1097 and Bentwood Drive

On September 2, 2022, the Bentwater Property Owners Association (“BW POA”) received confirmation from TXDOT that the traffic signal study conducted by TxDOT at the intersection of FM 1097 and Bentwood Drive concluded that the installation of a traffic signal is warranted at that intersection. The BW POA appreciates TxDOT’s responsiveness in scheduling the traffic signal study at the BW POA’s request.

The BW POA was, however, disappointed to learn that TxDOT’s current plan is to include the signal work in an asphalt overlay project on FM 1097 that is not expected to let until early 2026. The BW POA is now engaged in follow up discussions with TxDOT to discuss options for expediting the traffic signal installation to the fourth quarter of 2022 or the first quarter of 2023 (e.g., by treating this project as a new, stand-alone project or that it be added to another pending project). The BW POA and the FM 1097 Expansion Committee are also requesting local elected and other officials to advocate expedited installation of the traffic signal with TxDOT.

More information will be distributed as future developments warrant.
