Months ago, Van Alstyne Mayor Teddie Ann Salmon told me that Texas Department of Transportation would be providing the city new directional lights at the troublesome intersection at the Highway 75 underpass and Van Alstyne Parkway. It seems that at certain times of the day that intersection can become a quagmire.

Help is coming soon.

Salmon phoned the palatial Leader offices on Monday to let us know the good news: TxDot has informed the mayor that poles have been acquired for the new directional lights at the intersection, and installation will begin April 1.
