Gorrondona Engineering Services (GES) performed the geotechnical engineering for the new FM 897 alignment located in Fannin County. The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) is extending FM 897 through a new location (undeveloped). (https://ge-services.net/north-texas-municipal-water-district-ntmwd-fm-897-bridge/) The length of the alignment is approximately 6.5-miles long with a bridge spanning roughly 6,900-feet along the future Bois D’ Arc Creek Reservoir.
The study limits begin from just south of US-82 and extend north to FM 1396. The bridge spanning the future reservoir is currently under construction with the first section of driving surface completed. GES is pleased to have been on the Bridgefarmer & Associates Team for the FM 897 Bridge project.
