GRAYSON COUNTY, TX - The Eisenhower State Park will soon have a new entrance. Right now crews are clearing trees and cutting the path for a new gateway into the park.  They'll also be repairing and re-paving all of the secondary roads. TXDOD says visitors to the park are excited about the changes and its progress in the right way. 

It's tax moneys at work that our agency has and that Texas Department of Transportation manages those funds for us and this is again progress in the right way," said park superintendent Paul Kisel.

TXDOT says the cost of the total project is about $1.2 million dollars and they expect it to be finished by November.
