TxDOT TO SHIFT TRAFFIC ON SH-36 BEGINNING WEDNESDAY

The Texas Department of Transportation has announced that this Wednesday, weather permitting, their contractor will move traffic on State Highway 36 to the newly constructed pavement and bridge between Business 36 and the Highway 290 Cloverleaf.

This change will allow the contractor to begin work on the existing lanes of Highway 36 and replace the existing bridge at the railroad overpass.

TxDOT would like to remind everyone to obey all warning signs, watch for workers and equipment, buckle up and drive safely.

This work is part of a $14.3-million project to widen SH 36 to a four lane divided highway between Highway 290 West and Business 36.

This project is contracted to Angel Brothers Holding Corp. out of Baytown, Texas and is expected to be complete by spring 2018.
