Tim McAlaby, the Public Information Officer for the TxDOT Paris District, provided KSST with exciting news for motorists in Sulphur Springs. The past week there has been minor construction on the Hillcrest Dr. I-30 overpass in Sulphur Springs. The construction crew poured new concrete in worn portions of the road in preparation for the new cloverleaf interchange that the Paris District is currently awaiting state office approval. The minor construction is expected to be completed by the end of the next week.
Rest area construction along the interstate in Cumby is expected to begin in the upcoming months. The rest areas have already received approval from Austin, but construction crews are still waiting on the “green light” to begin dirt work. The new rest area will follow the latest design being used by Texas in other locations.
