“Updated” County Requires No Additional Funding for Right of Way Purchases on Hwy 11

Hopkins County Judge Robert Newsom had just finished his first county budget when he got a letter from TXDOT saying they needed more than $100,000 from the county for right-of-way purchases for phase three of a Highway 11 West improvement project from Commerce to Sulphur Springs.
