Munday – A $6.5 million Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) project that will make improvements to US 277 in Knox County is scheduled to begin this week. Project improvements will focus on placing a new asphaltic concrete pavement road surface, making road repairs to various locations and upgrading guardrails. The project is headed by contractor Zack Burkett Co., of Wichita Falls, TX, who's set to begin placing construction signs and barricades in the work zone.
“Work on the northbound lanes is scheduled to begin at the Baylor County Line on Feb. 18 and progress south towards Goree,” said Jared Groves, P.E., TxDOT’s Munday Area assistant engineer. “Crews will then resurface the northbound lanes from Goree back to the Baylor County Line before continuing south through Munday and wrapping up work near the Haskell County Line.”
Motorists traveling through the active work zone will see traffic reduced down to one lane and should be on the lookout for workers and slow moving construction equipment, Groves added.
Both drivers and motorcyclists should also be aware that uneven lane conditions may exist through the project construction zone.
Work is scheduled to conclude in early May 2019 and will take place weather permitting.
