Date: May 24, 2019

A pre-construction meeting held this week at the Polk County Area Office in Livingston signals the beginning of a construction project in Polk County.

Barricades will be set next week and crews are expected to begin work on June 3, weather permitting, from just south of US 287 in Corrigan to Moscow in Polk County. The work will include joint repairs, milling and inlaying the existing surface in Corrigan, placing a hot mix level-up course and a porous friction course final surface designed to repel water and reduce road noise.

Moore Brother Construction, of Lufkin, will serve as contractor for the $3.6 million construction project. The work is scheduled to include all five lanes in Corrigan and northbound lanes only between Corrigan and Moscow. It's expected to be completed by the end of the year

Motorists are urged to use caution, stay alert and obey all traffic control in the area.  Additionally, prepare to reduce speed, expect lane closures and traffic delays until project completion.
