ATLANTA – Crews will soon install a median cable barrier along three sections of roadway in Harrison, Morris, and Titus Counties, according to plans approved in September by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“This safety project will place almost ten more miles of cable barriers on our area roadways,” said Atlanta District Director of Transportation Operations Rebecca Wells. “Cable barriers consist of several strands of high-tension cable and catch vehicles in the median before they cross over into oncoming traffic,” she said.

Sections of roadway scheduled to receive cable median barriers are:

  • US 80 in Harrison County from SL 281 to Tom Brown Parkway – 5.5 miles
  • SH 11 in Morris County from 0.7 miles east of US 259 to 3.4 miles east of US 259 – 2.7 miles
  • US 271 in Titus County from 1 mile south of SH 49 to 1 mile west of Business 271 – 1.7 miles

Massana Construction Inc. of Tyrone, GA, receives the project with a low bid of $1,862,982.

TxDOT expects the work to begin in early 2023. Once underway, the project should take about ten months to complete, weather permitting.
