Hale County Rehabilitation Project Begins

Thu November 07, 2019 - West Edition #23

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has begun work on a $18.5 million project to make roadway improvements to more than 7 mi. of U.S. 70, from Milwee Street in the city of Plainview to the Floyd County line.

"The project will make needed improvements and repairs to the pavement, but is also expected to enhance the overall safety of U.S. 70," said Heath Bozeman, P.E, TxDOT Plainview Area engineer overseeing the project.

Work has started on a project that will mill portions of the existing pavement then repave and resurface the roadway. Additional work taking place along the north side of U.S. 70, inside the Plainview city limits, includes upgrading sidewalks and ramps to be Americans with Disability Act compliant, and making culvert, and curb and gutter repairs.

The project's completion date is scheduled for August 2020.
