PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today advised motorists that a summer project to improve guardrails along Interstate Highway 30 in Hopkins and Franklin Counties will begin the week of Sept. 3.
DBI Services LLC, Hazleton, Pa., was awarded the contract for this roadway safety improvement project valued at more than $3.9 million. The contractor was granted 182 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project. The target completion date is mid-summer 2020, officials said.
Contractor crews will be working at various locations along I-30 in Hopkins in Franklin Counties, so motorists are advised to watch for temporary work zones in these counties.
Motorists who travel regularly in this area along I-30 should also 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.
