PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials announced today that a project to improve a portion of US 69 in Greenville, Texas, is slated to begin on April 25.
The contractor, Oldcastle Texas Materials Inc., was granted 111 working days to complete this project valued at more than $3.3 million. The target completion date for this work is September 2018, weather permitting, officials said.
The project will extend from the intersection of US 69 and US 380 along US 69 to its intersection with O’Neal Street in Greenville. The contractor will rehabilitate the existing roadway and its shoulders, upgrade culverts and add safety end treatments, and overlay a new pavement surface.
The work will occur in phases in order to maintain eastbound and westbound traffic movements, and to minimize lane closures, officials said.
Motorists who frequently travel in this area are advised to remain alert and pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
