Sparks Drive Connection Now Open to the Public

Sparks Drive Open

The Sparks Drive Connection Project is complete, and the new road is open to motorists. The finished road significantly enhances accessibility to Cleburne's industrial park by connecting Sparks Drive to the Chisholm Trail Parkway (CTP) from both directions.

Sparks Drive runs from County Road 1017 to the Chisholm Trail Parkway. Previously, the road was disconnected from the east side of the parkway and later intersected at County Road 1022. With the completion of the project, Sparks Drive now allows for a straight drive between the two county roads, with a connection to the Chisholm Trail Parkway for the east side of industrial park.

The project also included a new bridge over West Buffalo Creek. 

The Sparks Drive Connection Project was completed on time and within budget. One-third of the project being funded through a grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA).

“This new road is a testament to our community's collaborative efforts and steady commitment to improving our community,” said Mayor Scott Cain. “Its completion represents an important step forward in facilitating economic growth, fostering business opportunities and further solidifying Cleburne's position as a hub for industrial development.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the road occurred on Wednesday, Nov. 29. Community and business leaders were in attendance to celebrate the accomplishment.
