PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that mill and inlay work to upgrade portions of two state highways in Sulphur Springs, Texas, is slated to begin the week of Feb. 18.
Contractor RK Hall, Paris, Texas, was granted 107 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $5.2 million. The target date for completion of this work is late June 2019, officials said.
The contractor will perform mill and inlay work on State Highway 19 from the north city limits of Sulphur Springs south- and westward to BU 67, and on State Highway 154 from its intersection with Loop 301 southward to State Highway 11.
The mill and inlay work on SH 154 will include full-depth concrete repairs at the north and south approaches of the Broadway Street overpass at I-30. Mill and inlay work removes the existing surface from a roadway and recycles it for use as a new pavement surface on the same roadway, officials noted.
Motorists who travel regularly in these areas are asked to pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones; especially while this project is underway. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
