Texas Department of Transportation officials today advised motorists to watch for mobile, rolling work zones at night along US 75 and I-30 in its Paris District in Northeast Texas.
The contractor, Brydll Contracting, Inc., was granted 30 working days, weather permitting, to complete this pavement improvement and safety project valued at more than $350,000. The target completion date for this project is mid-August 2021, officials said.
Contractor crews will be replacing raised pavement markers on two highways using a slow-moving mobile operation. Crews will be working from 7:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. nighty beginning July 5. These work crews will be followed by illuminated trailers and pickup trucks with arrow-board signs and flashing lights, to alert traffic behind them to divert into the open, adjacent lane of travel, officials said.
Work crews will be active on US 75 and I-30 in these counties: Grayson County, on US 75 from the Collin-Grayson County line to the Texas-Oklahoma state line; Hunt/Hopkins/Franklin Counties, on I-30 from the Hunt-Rockwall county line eastward to the Franklin-Titus County line.
Motorists who frequently travel in these areas are asked to pay special attention to all traffic controls and signs, 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.
