Crews are scheduled to work in coming days to repair potholes and pavement failures on two roadways where heavy truck traffic has stressed their conditions.

FM 842 and FM 1669 in Angelina County will continue to be repaired, weather permitting, ahead of district sealcoat season. Crews are working to keep the heavily traveled roads rehabilitated until new asphalt can be applied.

“These two farm roads are under heavy loads and have been pushed to the limit due to truck traffic mostly working in the oil and gas industry,” said Rhonda Oaks, public information officer. “We are aware of the strain on the pavement and are working to repair them. More extensive repairs are also scheduled to begin in May.”

Work is scheduled as problem areas are discovered. Motorists are urged to reduce speed through these areas and stay alert for intermittent work zones in various locations. Watch for flaggers, lane closures and moving equipment  on these roadways.
