On Monday, May 12, 2008, beginning at 7pm, the Texas Department
of Transportation?s (TxDOT) contractor will switch northbound and
southbound traffic to the inside lane between FM 2818 and Francis Street
along Texas Avenue. This switch is necessary for the removal of
existing work zone pavement markings and the installation of new
permanent pavement markings.
Work operations will continue through Monday night and
early Tuesday morning. Once all work operations are completed Tuesday
morning, traffic will be able to use all six lanes of Texas Avenue.
Delays are to be expected until this work is completed. An alternate
route should be used in order to bypass the construction.
TxDOT appreciates everyone?s patience and asks for
increased awareness of construction activities in and around the area.
This night work is part of the $17 million dollar widening project of
Texas Avenue contracted to Knife River.
