A section of US 59 in northern Harrison County will receive a new riding surface during the coming months, according to plans approved in October by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
“We will be resurfacing a 3.1-mile section of the highway from Marion County Line to FM 1997,” said Ray Brady, area engineer for TxDOT in Marshall. “The old pavement will be removed, the base materials strengthened and then the entire roadway will be repaved.”
Madden Construction Company of Minden, La., was awarded the contract for the construction project with a bid of $13.7 million.
"Work on the project should begin in March of next year and take about nine months to complete," Brady said.
