Street Maintenance

The City of Red Oak's Public Works Department strives to provide the residents with the best possible streets in Ellis County. Many of the streets in Red Oak were part of the City's 2011 Street Resurfacing plan, including Stainback Road, Stainback Court, Crump Circle, Tom Driver and many of the older downtown Red Oak area streets. The City worked with Ellis County road crews for the resurfacing work. The work was funded through the City of Red Oak utilizing revenues from the 2010 Certificate of Obligation Bond.

Two of the traffic lights in the City of Red Oak (Methodist at Red Oak Road and Live Oak Street at Red Oak Road), part of the Red Oak Road Street Improvement Project, are maintained by the City of Red Oak. The other street lights are maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation since they are located on state highways.

Main Street & SH 342 Connection Project

Red Oak Residents:

The City of Red Oak will have a brand new street intersection at State Highway 342 starting Monday August 15, 2016. The new intersection will align the Red Oak High School’s main driveway along with the new Main Street road. This new intersection will provide a more efficient access to the high school and to S.H. 342. In the near future, the Texas Department of Transportation, TxDOT, will provide traffic signals to increase safety at the new intersection.

The old Main Street and S.H. 342 intersection will be abandoned for thru traffic. The road abandonment will include tearing out the existing pavement and replacing with a grass median with concrete curb along the perimeter. Both of Main Street plaza’s driveways will still be accessible from the old Main Street road.
The new intersection will have a new traffic pattern. Please take a couple of minutes to review and familiarize yourself with the new traffic pattern on the attached maps.

Please feel free to contact the Public Works Department at the telephone numbers listed below if you have any questions or concerns. Please visit the City’s website for any additional updates.
