TxDOT begins US 79 work
The Texas Department of Transportation’s contractor began construction operations to overlay existing pavement on US 79 from two miles west of FM 1786 to 2.4 miles west of FM 487 on Oct. 19.
Drivers can expect delays, and various lane closures throughout the duration of the project.
TxDOT asks for the public’s patience during this work. Please watch for traffic control and messages. If possible, TxDOT encourages drivers to plan for extra travel time through this area or seek other routes.
This project is contracted to Knife River Corp. for $1.91 million. The project is expected to be complete in January 2021.
