Posted: Updated:

From the Texas Dept. of Transportation:

Texas Department of Transportation officials met Friday, May 14, 2010 with representatives of HJC Farms, Inc., of Hawley, Texas in a pre-construction meeting devoted to traffic safety and construction procedures to be used during the Sign Upgrade on US 82 in Grayson County. The project limits of work will be from FM 1417 to the Cooke County Line.

The work to be done will consist of replacing signs, sign posts, sign bases, delineators and object markers along US 82 in Grayson County. The Contractor has been granted 30 working days to complete this $183,170.00 project. The Contractor will begin setting barricades and signs on Thursday, June 3, 2010. The contract is anticipated to be complete by July 9, 2010.

The traveling public is requested to observe signs and to be aware of lane closures and potential temporary detours. Caution and reduced speed is imperative when approaching these work zones due to the magnitude of the volume of traffic. Please remember that it is against the law to cut across on to unpaved surfaces and that traffic fines double in work zones when workers are present.
