FM 2493 Culvert Work To Conclude Today

The Texas Department of Transportation has announeced the re-opening of all lanes on FM 2493 just south of Grande Boulevard by 5:00 pm today where recent culvert work has had lanes reduced.

Crews are laying fresh hot mix and striping today.

Completion of this phase of the project marks the end of planned impacts on traffic for this project, which is six months ahead of schedule.

"This project has certainly stimulated growth in that area," said Tyler District Public Information Officer Larry Krantz. "We're pleased that our contractor has been able to work aggressively and deliver this job so far ahead of schedule. Everybody wins with this one."
