Construction barricades were set Monday signaling the beginning of new construction projects in San Jacinto County.
Crews will begin working this week on SH 150 from the Walker County line to FM 945 North to reconstruct pavement and add a passing lane. Work is also planned to upgrade guardrail to design standards from the Walker County line to SH 156.
Angel Brother Holdings Corp., Baytown, TX, will serve as contractor for both the $10.7 million widening project and the $774,133 guardrail upgrades. Construction to widen the pavement will continue for 7.6 miles and the guardrail upgrades will continue for 15 miles. Work is set to be completed in May 2020, weather permitting. These projects are designed to enhance safety and improve traffic flow.
As work begins, motorists are urged to use caution and obey all traffic control devices in and near the work zones. Stay alert, reduce speed and be prepared for delays and/or stops. For more information about construction projects statewide, visit drivetexas.org.
