PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that roadway and slope repairs along a portion of US 75 in Grayson County will begin May 17.
Contractor Accelerated Critical Path Inc. of Plano, Texas, was granted 213 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $1.6 million. The contractor anticipates placing construction barricades on May 16 and beginning work on May 17. The target completion date for this project is March 2020, officials said.
The contractor will complete roadway and slope repairs from .6 miles north of Randell Lake Road to .4 miles south of Randell Lake Road along US 75. Occasional lane closures will be necessary while this project is underway, officials noted.
Motorists who regularly travel along this portion of US 75 in Grayson County are asked to pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and to 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.
