Ferris, TX – The City of Ferris, in its ongoing efforts to enhance community identity and pride, is thrilled to announce the approval of construction of a state-of-the-art gateway monument sign. This significant landmark will be prominently located along the southbound lane of Interstate 45, welcoming residents and visitors to the vibrant City of Ferris.
The approval for construction of the gateway monument is a result of a collaborative agreement between the Ferris Economic Development Corporation, the City of Ferris, and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). This partnership underscores the commitment to improving the aesthetic appeal of our highways and the promotion of local heritage.
“The new gateway monument is not just a sign; it is a symbol of Ferris’s growth and prosperity,” said Brooks Williams, City Manager for the City of Ferris. “It is with great pride that we embark on this project that will greet everyone entering our city with a clear message of welcome and community spirit.”
The monument’s design reflects Ferris’s unique character and heritage. Built with high-quality materials to withstand the test of time, it will serve as a beacon of the city’s commitment to progress and innovation. The sign’s illumination will ensure visibility at all hours, showcasing Ferris’s welcoming nature day and night.
Construction is anticipated to begin within 180-days with an anticipated completion date in late 2024. The City of Ferris advises motorists to expect minimal traffic disruptions during the construction phase and appreciates the public’s patience and cooperation.
