More than $4 million in Midland Development Corp. projects -- including $2 million for a highway safety project at Loop 250 and County Road 1150 -- are on Tuesday’s Midland City Council agenda.

The donation agreement, according to city documents, is meant to leverage Texas Department of Transportation funds for the construction of main lanes and interchanges at the intersection.

Other projects include:

- $1.7 million for improvements to the intersection of Carver Street and Scharbauer Drive, including but not limited to drainage, sidewalks, handicapped ramps, road improvements and utilities.

- $316,000 for a promotional agreement with the Bush Tennis Center for funding for Chris Davidson Opportunity Park.

The park is being relocated to a 3.31-acre tract of land on Briarwood Avenue west of the Bush Tennis Center.

- $90,000 for a promotional agreement with the Midland Odessa Transportation Alliance (MOTRAN) to create groundwork for promoting and developing new and expanded business enterprises in the Midland/Odessa area.
