CHILDRESS – TxDOT will begin a project on June 13 to add safety features to various highways in the Childress District.

This $422,372 project will consist of installing rumble strips on the center line in some locations to help prevent crossover crashes and on shoulders to prevent run-off-the-road crashes.

This is a mobile operation, and the contractor, Texas Panhandle Construction Inc., will use advance signs on the roadway. Motorists should slow down when in the work zone and watch for slow-moving construction equipment.

Highways scheduled to receive rumble strips are:

County Highway Limits
Briscoe SH 86 Swisher County line to FM 3030
Briscoe SH 86 FM 3030 east for 12 miles
Briscoe SH 86 12 miles east of FM 3030 to the Hall County line
Briscoe SH 256 SH 86 east to SH 70
Childress US 62 Cottle County line to FM 164
Collingsworth FM 338 US 83 east to the Oklahoma state line
Collingsworth FM 1056 FM 1547 east to FM 338
Cottle US 62 South end of the South Pease River to the Childress County line
Cottle US 62 FM 2876 north to the south end of the South Pease River bridge

This project should be complete in three months, weather permitting.
