The northbound lanes of State Highway 36 will be opening on Wednesday.
The Texas Department of Transportation has announced that Angel Brothers Construction is in the final phase of construction the $14-million project to widen the existing two lanes of traffic to a four lane divided highway.
Senator Lois Kolkhorst, a member of the Senate Transportation Committee, lauded the announcement, saying she recently met with our local TxDOT officials, and they have delivered an important new roadway that should improve public safety and traffic flow.
Police officers will be on hand to assist with traffic control during the traffic switch. Drivers are reminded to obey all traffic warning signs and use caution when travelling through the construction zone.
Once traffic is switched to its final configuration, Angel Brothers will reconstruct part of the concrete median barrier north of US 290, finish the main lane paving on the south end of the project and reconstruct the frontage road near Premier Metal Buyers. Construction is projected to be complete by the end of June.
