Tue September 10, 2019 - West Edition #19

Texas Department of Transportation officials announced that work to expand and improve U.S. 82 in Red River County is slated to begin.

Contractor RK Hall LLC was granted 367 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $14.2 million. This work should take about two years to complete, officials said.

The project will stretch along U.S. 82 from FM 1159 just east of Clarksville eastward to the Red River-Bowie County line, a distance of approximately 17.8 mi.

The contractor will widen the existing pavement between the Kickapoo Creek bridge and FM 1699 to install passing lanes, extend existing cross drainage structures, improve bridge rail and metal-beam guard fence, install safety end treatments on culverts, and overlay a new pavement surface on the roadway.
