TxDOT Paris District

For April 19-25, 2020

Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that mill and inlay pavement work would begin April 20 on two highways in Red River County.

Contractor R.K. Hall LLC was granted 204 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $7.9 million. The contractor anticipates placing construction signs on April 20 and starting work soon after. The target completion date for this project is November 2020, officials said.

Contractor crews will mill off the existing worn pavement surface and install a new pavement surface layer on State Highway 37, from its intersection with US 271 in Bogata to FM 71 in Franklin County. The project will require temporary daytime lane closures, but access to adjacent properties will be maintained. The contractor will also upgrade existing metal beam guard fence and bridge rails, and clean and seal bridge joints. This work will require temporary, occasional shoulder closures, officials said.

The contractor will also perform mill and inlay work on BU 271D, from US 271 to Spur 38 in Bogata, and install new end treatments on existing drainage structures. This work will also require temporary daytime lane closures, officials said.

Motorists who regularly travel in these areas should remain alert and pay special 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.
