Texas Department of Transportation officials announced that a project to replace three rural road bridges in Lamar County would begin Friday (Nov 15).
Contractor Highway 19 Construction LLC was granted 190 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $700,000. The target completion date for replacing these bridges is November 2020, officials said.
The contractor will replace these bridges: CR 26050 at Morrison Creek; CR 26300 at a tributary of Ghost Creek; and CR 23100 at Robertson Creek. The contractor will complete each before moving to another. The project will begin at Morrison Creek and then proceed to Ghost Creek, followed by Robertson Creek. Road closures will be required while construction is underway at each location, officials said.
Motorists are advised to use alternate routes while these bridges undergo replaced. They should also remain alert and pay special attention to all signs, barricades, traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through any work zone. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
