PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that work will begin Aug. 30 on a project to replace the North Sulphur River Relief Bridge along State Highway 19/24 in Delta County.

The contractor, L&N Bridge LLC, Antlers, Okla., was granted 180 working days to complete this project valued at more than $1.6 million. Officials said the contractor plans to place work signs on Aug. 28 and begin construction Aug. 30. The target completion date for this work is May 2018, weather permitting.

The contractor will replace the existing north-bound bridge at this location, after removing the existing bridge. After a new bridge is in place, the contractor will also reconstruct the roadway approaches to the new bridge. TxDOT officials said the contractor will place an on-site detour to carry north-bound traffic while this project is underway.

The new bridge will be 38 feet wide with two, 12-foot travel lanes; a four-foot inside shoulder; and a 10-foot outside shoulder. This will match the width of the existing roadway approach, officials said.

Access to adjacent property will be maintained while this project is underway. TxDOT officials encouraged motorists to obey all traffic controls on site, including flaggers directing traffic, and reduce their speed while approaching and traveling through this work zone. They should also drive according to road conditions and avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio and navigation systems.
