Motorists who regularly travel along U.S. Highway 82 between Bonham and Sherman are advised to reduce their speed and expect possible delays as the Texas Department of Transportation conducts daytime lane shifts on Wednesday and Thursday.


A TxDOT statement released Monday said the lane shift is necessary in order for crews to install concrete support beams for the FM 898 overpass in Fannin County. The eastbound lanes of U.S. 82 in the vicinity will be closed on Wednesday and the westbound lanes will be closed on Thursday, but crews are expected to reopen the lanes each night. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction of travel and will be separated by orange traffic dividers.


The agency advises motorists to reduce their speed when in the area and to be mindful of work zones and crews during operations.
