I-20 overlay funding approved

PARKER COUNTY — In an ongoing effort to improve safety, the Texas Transportation Commission approved a $2 million project on I-20 from Patrick Creek, west of Dennis Road, to Ric Williamson Memorial Highway.

Northeastern Pavers Inc. was awarded the project that will mill and overlay the existing highway.  Weather permitting, construction is expected to begin by this summer and be completed by this fall.

“Maintaining a safe transportation system is a top priority at TxDOT,” said Commissioner Fred Underwood, Texas Transportation Commission.

 

Safety is a top priority at TxDOT, and the foundation for the agency’s planning, building and maintaining projects across the state. When driving through a work zone, some simple steps to take are: slow down, pay attention, avoid distractions such as cell phones, be patient and plan ahead. You can see all Texas road conditions by visiting www.drivetexas.org.

 

TxDOT officials say they appreciate the patience of motorists, and encourages attention to all warning signs within the construction work zone while crews work to complete the project as quickly and as safely as possible.
