TXDOT Working On Several Projects Around East Texas

TXDOT is working on several projects around East Texas. Here's a round up of them so you know what areas to avoid when travelling in the upcoming days.

TXDOT is to begin resurfacing FM 2493 (Old Jacksonville Highway) beginning Monday, April 28th, between FM 2813 in Gresham and FM 346 in Flint. This is expected to take around five days, and daytime lane closures will be in effect after 8:00 am, and may be in place til sunset.

TXDOT will also resume working on raised medians on Loop 281 in Longview beginning Tuesday, April 29th. This project is expected to last until June of this year.

Pavement rehabilitation will continue on FM 756 (Paluxy) in Tyler. Crews are scheduled to finish this project on Wednesday, April 30th. Aftwards they will begin the same work on SH 110 between FM 346 and Barbee Road in Whitehouse. This work is expected to take around three months.

On May 5th, crews will begin resurfacing SH 19 and US 84 in Palestine. Parking along both roads will be forbidden while the work continues. The work will focus on Church and Mallard Streets, and the railroad overpass.
