A pre-construction meeting was held Monday in Livingston that signals a new construction project that will begin there next week.
Barricades will be set Thursday with work scheduled to begin Monday, weather permitting, on US 59 in Polk County from SL 393 South to the Trinity River. This project is designed to enhance safety and improve ride quality.
Moore Brothers Construction, Lufkin, will serve as contractor for the $2.2 million construction project. The work will include the application of hot mix to level the roadway, a seal coat and the final surface that is designed to reduce road noise and spray during wet weather.
As this project begins, motorists are asked to stay alert to moving equipment and workers in the area, expect intermittent daily lane closures as work progresses and obey all traffic control devices. Traffic fines double when workers are present. All work schedules are subject to change in inclement weather.
