PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that bridge abutment erosion repairs will begin this week on FM 824 at the McClure Creek Bridge in Fannin County.
Contractor Hartbeat Construction, Tyler, Texas, was granted 27 working days to complete the repairs valued at more than $168,000. The contractor plans to begin work on June 29, and TxDOT officials anticipate completion by Aug. 31, 2017, weather permitting.
The contractor will prepare the site for repair and remove concrete pieces, driftwood and wooden posts. Crews will also excavate the site, add embankment and rip-rap stone, and install metal-beam guard fence and guardrail end treatments, officials said.
Motorists are urged to use care when traveling through this area as some daytime lane closures will be necessary to complete the work. Motorists should also pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
