Forensic Testing of State Highway 19 North Almost Complete; Repair Begins in September

PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation engineers in the Paris District said today that forensic testing on State Highway 19 north of Sulphur Springs to the Delta County line is almost complete.

Once the tests are concluded, engineers will be able to pinpoint a solution for the rough pavement surface that developed during 100+ degree summer heat following a pavement rehabilitation of that roadway. They assured drivers that they are gearing up to repair the roadway surface beginning in September.

Meanwhile, TxDOT officials requested that drivers who travel this route slow down and drive to road conditions and not use the road shoulders as a main travel lane.
