PARIS – The Texas Department of Transportation has begun work to improve State Highway 37 in Franklin County. TxDOT officials granted the contractor 457 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project at an estimated cost of more than $20.4 million. Work will proceed as weather permits, but should be completed in January 2018.

This project will extend along State Highway 37 from its intersection with FM 21 southward to the Franklin-Wood County line. The contractor will extend drainage and other structures, add safety enhancements and 10-foot shoulders to the roadway, and install new pavement and striping. TxDOT officials said some of these repairs will require temporary lane closures.

Wherever possible, motorists are urged to use alternate travel routes. If that is not possible, motorists should approach work zones cautiously, observe and obey all traffic controls and barricades, and travel through work zones at reduced speed while this work is underway.

Flaggers will be present along the roadway to alert drivers to changing conditions and detours, and guide motorists through these areas safely. Drivers should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems when driving.
