TxDOT Project on FM 2992 in Tyler County  print page

by: Rep. White, James

(Austin, TX) – Throughout Southeast Texas, Hurricane Harvey highlighted the importance of bridges and roads. In HD 19, bridges and roads were the paths to refuge and safety for thousands of Texans.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has began work on a project on FM 2992 from FM 1746 to two miles south of FM 1746 on September 4, 2018. The project will consist of a safety project that will include an additional paved surface width.

“I thank Southeast Texans for their continued support of our bridges and roads. Over the last few years, Texas taxpayers have approved constitutional amendments to dedicate their sales tax dollars and revenues for the Rainy Day Fund for bridges and roads in Texas. Without these vital projects, our economic prosperity would not continue to flourish. I thank the staff at TxDOT for prioritizing these projects that help my constituents get to and from work,” said Rep. White. “During this time of disaster recovery, I am thankful to TxDOT for completing projects that maintain our roadways open and facilitate travel throughout the area,” he concluded.

Please do not hesitate to contact Saul Mendoza, Chief of Staff, with questions regarding this release at 512-463-0490 or 409-283-3700.
