PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that a project to install profile pavement markings and centerline and shoulder rumble strips on various roads in seven Northeast Texas counties is set to begin July 17.
Contractor Strip-A-Zone was granted 68 working days, weather permitting, to complete this roadway improvement project valued at more than $1.4 million. The target completion date for this project is late summer 2019, officials said.
Contractor crews will place pavement profile markings and mill rumble strips into the centerline and shoulders of various roadways in Fannin, Franklin, Grayson, Hopkins, Hunt, Lamar and Red River counties.
Motorists who travel regularly in these counties should remain alert and pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
