PARIS – Motorists who frequently travel on US 69 in Rains County near Emory, Texas, should be on the alert for road construction beginning Feb. 23.

That is the date for contractor DL Lennon to begin rehabilitating a portion of that roadway. The work will extend from just north of the intersection of US 69 and FM 3299 southward to the intersection of FM 515 and US 69. The contractor should be able to complete this work in 159 working days, at an estimated cost of more than $4.6 million.
