Overpass Funding: The next big step in relieving traffic problems caused by long waits at the railroad crossing on U.S. 90 in Dayton came Friday. Liberty County Judge Jay Knight said the Houston-Galveston Area Council’s Transportation Policy Council met Friday and approved a $46 million grant toward an overpass project at the Highway 90 rail crossing. In addition to that federal funding, he said the Texas Department of Transportation Freight Advisory Committee indicated another $60 million in state funding will also be made available for that same project. Judge Knight said there are still steps to be taken but the fact that initial funding has been secured means the long hoped for Highway 90 overpass in Dayton is closer than ever to becoming reality. He estimates, if all goes well, the entire project could be completed in about three years. That would be roughly the same time as the Grand Parkway – also known as State Highway 99 – opens to traffic in Dayton.

Liberty Jubilee a Success: Liberty City Manager Tom Warner said the 34th Annual Liberty Jubilee was a success, starting with Friday night’s well attended street dance with Mason Lively opening for headliner Stoney Larue. Mr. Warner said estimates put Friday night’s crowd at about 3,000 people. Then, on Saturday, it was a day full of family fun with arts and crafts booths, a kids’ carnival area, plus live music throughout the day. Mr. Warner thanked city staff for their help making it all possible. Now, the Liberty city manager said it’s time to start planning for next year’s 35th annual festival.

Devers ISD: A big change for the Devers school district - during last Thursday’s Devers school board meeting, trustees unanimously approved a three-year pilot program for a four-day student school week. Devers Superintendent Liz Harris said while students will have a four-day instructional week, Devers teachers will work some Fridays for training, staff development and other necessary functions. Back in 2016, the state changed requirements, moving from a 180 day school year to the new requirement of 75,600 instructional minutes. That change has allowed districts across the state to tailor make a school calendar that best fits their local needs. The Devers superintendent said the district’s focus will continue to target academic growth, increased daily attendance, and student enrollment.
