STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Contractors are nearing completion of the Rome Avenue Redevelopment project, just in time for Tarleton students’ return for the spring 2013 semester.

The $2.4 million project has transformed the western edge of the Stephenville campus and has provided a new gateway to Tarleton State University from Frey Street. It includes improved drainage and a realigned Rome Avenue, south to the Sloan Street intersection.

Designed by Randall Scott Architects, the project features a widened Rome Avenue with new sidewalks, a dedicated bicycle path, benches and extensive landscaping. Contractors also installed infrastructure improvements, including storm drainage, sewer lines and underground utilities to prepare for future growth of the Tarleton campus. Also part of the project was the realignment of the Rome and Vanderbilt intersection near the university’s Recreation Sports Center and Wisdom Gym.

The project utilized Permanent University Funds that can only be used for construction.
