TxDOT Begins Rework of Section of State Highway 11 West in Hopkins County

Texas Department of Transportation officials announced Tuesday that construction to improve a portion of State Highway 11 in Hopkins County will begin Jan. 2, 2017.

Contractor AK Gillis Inc., Sulphur Springs, Texas, was awarded the contract for this project valued at more than $5.5 million. TxDOT officials said the contractor has 231 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project. The target completion date is November 2017.

This work will take place along State Highway 11 from .08 miles southeast of Hopkins-Hunt County line to 3.03 miles west of FM 2653 South. The contractor will regrade the road bed, install drainage structures, apply treated and non-treated flexible road base, repave the road surface and install pavement markings in order to widen and upgrade the roadway, TxDOT officials said.

Those who must travel in this area are asked to pay special attention to all signs and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
