Safety features in the form of advance warning and chevron signs along curves will be added to 43 sections of area highways during coming months, according to plans approved in March by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“We will be installing advance warning and chevron signs along curves to prevent run-off-the-road crashes,” said Rebecca Wells, Director of Traffic Operations for TxDOT in Atlanta.

Champion Infrastructure of Salado, TX was awarded the contract for the construction on these projects with a bid of $659,365.

"Work on the projects should begin in May of this year and take about five months to complete," Wells said.

Highways scheduled to receive the improvements are:
