SHERMAN, Texas — The Texas Department of Transportation has announced plans to install concrete median barriers along a 1.4-mile stretch of US 82 in Sherman.

Construction will begin on November 27. The barriers will go between Loy Lake Road (FM 1417) and Travis Street (FM 131).

The goal of the $3.3 million project is to help prevent crossover head-on collisions.

FNH Construction will have 156 working days to complete the project, weather permitting.

Occasional lane closures will be necessary during the construction process, which is scheduled to be complete in September 2024.
