Safety Features to be Added to Area Highways

Twenty-two sections of highways in Northeast Texas on schedule for new features

 ATLANTA – Safety features in the form of the texturized centerline and edge line markings will be added to 22 sections of area highways during the coming months, according to plans approved in December 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 prevent run-off-the-road crashes,” said Rebecca Wells, Director of Traffic Operations 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.” 

In addition to the pavement markings, several curves will also receive lighted flashing chevron signs. The signs are erected along the curve and are activated by approaching vehicles, causing them to light up in sequence to show motorists the direction they need to travel.

Highways scheduled to receive the improvements are:
