The Texas Department of Transportation is advising motorists in Grayson County and Fannin County to be aware of multiple road-improvement projects that are scheduled this week and may result in traffic changes or delays.
“Motorists are advised to remain alert and pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones,” a TxDOT press release said. “They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.”
Schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather conditions, equipment failure or other issues.
