What will this bond do for Rockwall County?
- Improve four major arteries that move traffic throughout the County
- Accelerate improvements - TxDOT requires local funding, or our roads will not improve for many years
- Increase quality of life
- Increase safety:
- Ambulance accessibility
- Reduce high road beds
- Add shoulders to roads
- Decrease pollution - reduce standing traffic emissions
- Keep our tax-base strong - improve economic development. Businesses will thrive if customers can get to them easily and the tax burden on the homeowner will be lessened
- Make walking/bike trails possible
We compete for funding with Collin, Denton, Dallas, and Tarrant counties. They have local funding for their projects. We need to "Get in the Game" and get improvements for our roads.
