Franklin and Hopkins

Here’s a look at work planned in Franklin and Hopkins Counties during the week of Oct. 29, 2018. These schedules are subject to change due to weather conditions, equipment failure or other unforeseen issues. Motorists are advised to remain alert and pay particular attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.

Sulphur Springs Area (Hopkins, Franklin Counties):

SH 37, Franklin County: From Mt. Vernon to Winnsboro. Watch for lane closures, and short traffic delays as crews prepare for surfacing operations; flaggers will direct traffic.

SH 154/SH 19, Hopkins County: From SH 11 to Loop 301. Watch for night-time lane closures and short traffic delays as crews perform concrete repair and surfacing operations. Flaggers will direct traffic.

Paris

Texas Department of Transportation officials announced that additional crack seal repairs are scheduled this weekend in Paris. As a result, motorists may encounter occasional lane closures.

D&M Contractors LLC, Van, Texas, will continue to crack seal repairs Oct. 27 and 28 at several locations in Lamar County. TxDOT officials said the contractor will work these days to minimize the impact of lane closures on traffic and travelers.

On Saturday, Oct. 27 the contractor will be working on various FM roads in southwest Lamar County. Temporary lane closures will be required to perform this work.

On Sunday, Oct. 28 affected locations include the South Loop 286 interchange; the intersection of Loop 286 and North Main Street to Stone Avenue; State Highway 19/24 from Hearne Street to Clarksville Street; US 82 East from 42nd Street NE to Division Street in Blossom, Texas; and FM 1508 from US 82 East to US 271 South. Some ramp closures will be necessary at the South Loop 286 interchange, and temporary lane closures will occur at the other locations, officials said.

Motorists who frequently travel in these areas are asked to pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and move through work zones; especially while these repairs are underway. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.

Delta Lamar and Red River

Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that a project to improve road drainage in three counties in Northeast Texas begins Oct. 26.

Talbran Enterprises LLC was granted 94 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $519,000. The contractor began setting alert signs Oct. 25 in Delta County, officials said. This project will require temporary lane closures at times.

The contractor will install safety end treatments and replace or extend cross drainage culverts at several locations in Delta, Lamar and Red River Counties. The contractor will begin work Oct. 26 in Delta County, then move to Lamar County, and then to Red River County.

Officials said the project includes installation of roadway underdrains at various locations on Loop 286 in Paris, Texas: as well as US 82, between FM 1508 and FM 2121; and State Highway 19, southbound, around the intersection with FM 2036. This portion of the drainage improvement project is currently scheduled for next winter or early spring (February/March) of 2019, officials said.

Motorists who frequently travel in Delta, Lamar and Red River Counties are asked to pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones; especially while these repairs are underway. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
