TxDOT Construction Projects Update for House District 19  print page

by: Rep. White, James

(Austin, TX) – Throughout Southeast Texas, Hurricane Harvey highlighted the importance of bridges and roads. In House District 19, bridges and roads were the paths to refuge and safety for thousands of Texans. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has provided updates on various projects taking place across Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Polk, and Tyler counties.

Polk County
• FM 350: Crews are currently working on culvert headwalls on a project on FM 350 North. The project is designed to improve guardrail to design standards and safety treat fixed objects.
• FM 3126: Work is scheduled to repair potholes and level up the roadway in various locations throughout FM 3126. Expect lane closures.
• FM 1745: Crews are scheduled to level the roadway in various locations throughout FM 1745.
• US 59: a project began on Feburary 12th, 2019 for the installing of advanced intersection warning signals at US 59 and US 287 in the City of Corrigan. The project is expected to be completed in approximately four months.

Hardin County
• US 96: A project on US 96 in Hardin County that began on May 10th, 2018 has been completed. The project was a safety project consisting of installing flashing beacon and safety lighting. Other areas impacted during this project were Jefferson County on SH 73 and Orange County on SH 1.

“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.
