Safety features will be added or enhanced along eight highways in Northeast Texas during the next four years, according to plans approved in March by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“We are looking at installing additional safety features on culverts and drainage structures along several sections of highways in Bowie and Cass counties,” said Paul Wong, area engineer for TxDOT in Texarkana.

CDM Holdings of New Boston was awarded the contract for the construction on these projects with a bid of $1.5 million.

Work on the projects should begin in June of this year and take about four years to complete, Wong said.

Highways scheduled to receive the improvements are:
