Highway Improvements

ATLANTA – Safety features in the form of texturized centerlines and shoulders will be added to 18 area highways during coming months, according to plans approved in September by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“We are looking at installing texturized pavement methods to centerline areas of these highways to help prevent crossover crashes and along the shoulders to avoid run-off-the-road crashes,” said Rebecca Wells, district traffic engineer for TxDOT in Atlanta. “The texturized pavement methods make noise when vehicle tires run over them, alerting drivers that they are getting out of their traffic lane.”

Highways scheduled to receive the improvements are:
