TxDOT Construction Projects Update for Tyler & Jasper Counties  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 two projects taking place in both Jasper and Tyler counties.

A project out on US 69 from the Angelina county line south to US 190 was completed on December 13th, 2019, in Jasper and Tyler counties. This overlay project consisted of laying new pavement on the existing roadway surface.

Additionally, a project in Jasper County started on January 13th, 2020. This project is for the construction of various bridge approaches and railings in the two counties.

“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 commend TxDOT for completing projects that maintain our roadways and facilitate travel throughout the area,” he concluded.
