PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today alerted drivers who frequently travel on Interstate Highway 30 in Hunt and Hopkins Counties that work will begin Aug. 13 to re-stripe that highway.

Contractor Stripe-A-Zone Inc. will be re-striping main travel lanes along I-30 at night, working from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., from Aug. 13 through Aug. 24, weather permitting.

This work will extend from the Hunt-Rockwall County line eastward to the Hopkins-Franklin County line. This is a mobile operation that will affect only one lane of travel at any given time, but the contractor will cover both main lanes of east- and west-bound travel on I-30 during the contract work period.

Motorists who travel along I-30 in Hunt and Hopkins County at this time are asked to pay special attention to all signs and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel cautiously through work zones. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
