Evening and nighttime drivers could experience delays on U.S. Highway 75 over the next several months as crews do more than $1.5 million of concrete repairs.
The Texas Department of Transportation announced Thursday that full-depth concrete repairs on Hwy. 75 in Grayson County — from the Collin County line to the Red River — will begin Monday evening. The work is scheduled to take place between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. on Sunday through Thursday nights. In a press release announcing the work, TxDOT officials said no work is scheduled for Friday or Saturday nights.
Contractor crews will remove damaged concrete pavement, and replace it with new concrete pavement. TxDOT said the work will require temporary lane closures throughout the work period.
TxDOT has granted contractor O. Trevino Construction 105 working days, weather permitting, to complete the project, which is valued at over $1.5 million. TxDOT officials said the target completion date for the work is October of this year.
“Motorists who regularly travel along this portion of U.S. (Hwy.) 75 in Grayson County are asked to pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and to reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones,” TxDOT public information officer Tim McAlavy said in a press release. “They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.”
