PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that contractor Highway 19 Construction LLC, Sulphur Springs, Texas, will soon begin replacing three bridges in Grayson and Fannin counties.
The contractor was granted 125 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project in Northeast Texas at an estimated cost of more than $930,000. TxDOT officials said the contractor will set alert signs for this project this week and begin work shortly thereafter.
The bridges are at CR 4900-1 at Indian Creek and CR 4245 at Freeman Creek in Fannin County; and CR 202-2 (Hazelwood Road) at Elba Creek in Grayson County. The contractor will begin work in Fannin County at Indian Creek and CR 4900-1, and then move to Freeman Creek and then Elba Creek in Grayson County.
The contractor will replace the bridges and their approaches at these sites. Work on each bridge is expected to last about two months, TxDOT officials said. The bridges and affected roads will be closed at each location while the work is underway.
Detours marked with signs will guide motorists around each construction site. Motorists should be alert for warning signs, barricades and flaggers in these areas, and approach work zones cautiously at reduced speed. The target date for completion of these bridge projects is February 2017.
