TxDOT to continue resurfacing on FM1137

ANDERSON CO., May 14, 2013-- Texas Department of Transportation maintenance crews this week are scheduled to continue resurfacing operations on FM 1137, between US 84 east of Palestine and the end of state maintenance.Daytime lane closures will be in effect while the work is in progress, and flaggers will control traffic.

Other TxDot work planned for the area:

LONGVIEW – Texas Department of Transportation maintenance crews this week are scheduled to perform fog seal operations in various locations on Spur 502 (Judson Road) between US 259 north of Longview and Spring Hill Road, just north of Loop 281. Daytime lane closures will be in effect while the work is in progress, and flaggers and pilot vehicles will control traffic in two-lane areas. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes if possible to avoid the long delays associated with fog seal work.

HENDERSON – Texas Department of Transportation contract crews this week are scheduled to resume mill-and-inlay operations on the Henderson Square, which halted unexpectedly last week because of equipment failure and inclement weather. Crews will continue removing the old pavement in the work area and replacing it with fresh hot mix, after which, weather-permitting, they will stripe the area before activating the new traffic signals. In addition to providing a brand-new driving surface, the pavement-repair work obliterates the old roadway striping that would not have been compatible with the new signals. Also this week in Rusk County, TxDOT maintenance crews are scheduled to continue resurfacing operations on FM 782 between FM 1716 in Oak Hill and SH 149 near the Gregg County Line. Elsewhere, TxDOT maintenance crews are scheduled to continue edge work on US 259 between the south end of the Kilgore Bypass and FM 850. Daytime lane closures will be in effect in each location while the work is in progress. Motorists are encouraged to be prepared to reduce speed and merge in and around the work zones.

VAN ZANDT COUNTY – Texas Department of Transportation contract crews this week are scheduled to resume mill-and-inlay operations on SH 19 in Canton between IH 20 and SH 64. The work should last most of the week, weather permitting. Once that work is complete, the crew is scheduled to move to perform the same work at the IH 20/SH 64 interchange west of Canton. Elsewhere in Van Zandt County, TxDOT maintenance crews this week are scheduled to conclude mill-and-inlay operations on US 80 in and around Grand Saline by Wednesday.
