Traffic along State Highway 19 N at FM71 will soon be slowed to a stop. The intersection will be converted to a 4-way stop. Beginning this next week, drivers in the area should watch for traffic delays as crews begin installing sign bases for the upcoming 4-way stop conversion. This is one of four projects in Hopkins/Franklin County served by TxDOT during the week beginning September 10, 2018.
Here’s a look at work planned in Franklin and Hopkins Counties during the week of Sept. 10, 2018. These schedules are subject to change due to weather conditions, equipment failure or other unforeseen issues. Motorists are advised to remain alert and pay special attention to all signs, barricades 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.
Other projects include:
I-30 rest areas, Hopkins County: on north and south service roads east of Cumby. Watch for work zones while workers are constructing and completing new rest areas for travelers on I-30.
SH 11, Hopkins County, from SH 154 to Rock Creek. Watch for work zones while workers are striping the newly surfaced roadway.
SH 37, Franklin County: From Mt. Vernon to Winnsboro. Watch for lane closures and short traffic delays as crews prepare for surfacing operations; flaggers will direct traffic.
