TxDOT Paris District Office Announces Concrete Work on I-30; Seal Coat of Roadways Set

Concrete repair work along I-30 in Hopkins County will begin the week of April 23, 2018, according to the Texas Department of Transportation Paris District office. Officials with TxDOT also announced they recently cleared Brannan Paving to seal coat several roads in Fannin, Franklin, Grayson, Hopkins, Hunt, Lamar, Rains and Red River counties. The contractor is scheduled to begin during the week of April 24 in Hunt County.

This district-wide seal coat project is scheduled to be completed by mid-August, weather permitting, at an estimated cost of more than $11.6 million. Some work times and locations may overlap, and traffic control measures may include some one-way operation during construction.

Innovative Roadway Solutions, a subcontractor, will begin seal coating roadway shoulders the week of April 24 in Hunt County and work its way through Hopkins, Red River, Lamar, Fannin, Grayson counties through the end of May. Brannan Paving will begin seal coating roadway main lanes the week of June 14 in Hunt County and work its way through Hopkins, Rains, Franklin, Lamar, Red River, Fannin and Grayson County through the week of August 10, 2018.

“This is preventative maintenance that is critical to seal out moisture and prevent damage to the pavement, as well as preserve our investment in these roadways,” said Jesse Herrera, TXDOT area engineer based in Sulphur Springs, Texas. “Provisions have been included in the highway contract to keep through traffic delays to a minimum, and access to adjacent properties will be maintained.”

People traveling along roadways receiving a seal coat should slow down and be aware of construction activity. Motorists should not drive through an area where asphalt has been applied, but rock has not yet been placed. There will be some loose rock along roadways as well, and motorists should be prepared to stop for a short duration while the work is underway.

“We request that people traveling on these roadways recognize that the temporary inconvenience of this construction is necessary to preserve our roadways,” Herrera said.

Motorists traveling in Northeast Texas should pay special attention to all traffic control devices and flaggers, and slow down when they encounter work on area roads this summer.
