Work on New Loop to Begin Soon in Northern Camp County

A new highway will connect US 271 and FM 1520

ATLANTA – Work on a new highway to improve mobility and connectivity in northern Camp County will begin soon, according to plans approved in January by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“The new State Loop 255 will connect US 271 and Farm to Market Road 1520 in northern Camp County,” said Tommy Bruce, area engineer for TxDOT in Mount Pleasant. “Most of the route will be on new location except for a section that will be on the current County Road 2116 between US 271 and County Road 2110. The new highway will have two 12-foot traffic lanes with 10-foot paved shoulders on each side.”

Receiving the award was R & G Construction of Marshall, Tx. as the contractor for the construction project with a $5.6 million bid.

Work on the project should begin in March of this year and take about two years to complete, Bruce said.
