The Town Creek HOA and Forest Meadows Neighborhood Association have been working with Richardson ISD (RISD) to improve the traffic flow and parking issues around the Skyview Elementary campus. At the November 4th RISD Board of Trustees meeting a contract amount of $2,607,000 was awarded to Mart, Inc., for the construction of the new parking lot, utility relocation and a building connector between the Annex (now the Early Childhood Center) and the main building. The parking lot construction should start in late December and be finished by March 2020.
After the construction activities are completed, the afternoon traffic congestion on Whitehurst and the street parking problems on the east side of the campus should be greatly diminished. A draft copy of the Traffic Management Plan is shown below.
