The Texas Department of Transportation released a list of road projects slated for the coming week on Friday that may result in traffic pattern changes and delays.
Drivers are encouraged to avoid in-car distractions, like cellphones and entertainment systems, and remain aware of possible lane shifts, road closures and slow-moving equipment and vehicles. Completion dates for the following projects may be affected by weather conditions, machinery failure or other circumstances.
Drivers traveling on FM 1417, between FM 691 and U.S. Highway 82, are advised to watch for lane shifts and slow-moving vehicles as workers widen the roadway.
On FM 691, between FM 131-Loy Lake Road and U.S. Highway 75, temporary lane closures will be made in order to widen FM 691 into a five-lane roadway. The intersection of FM 691 and FM 131-Loy Lake Road will be converted into a temporary, four-way stop before crews are able to install permanent signals.
The southbound freeway and frontage lanes of Hwy. 75, between FM 120 and Crawford Street, will be affected by shoulder closures and lane shifts as workers build retaining walls and a new entry ramp. Amid the project, the southbound exit for Crawford Street will be closed. Motorists impacted by the closure are encouraged to use the FM 120-Morton Street exit.
Drivers may encounter debris-removal crews on Hwy. 75 from the Grayson-Collin county line and the Texas-Oklahoma state border. Workers will operate along shoulders and medians during daylight hours on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Watch for shoulder closures and lane shifts on the northbound lanes of Hwy. 75 between FM 1417 and Choctaw Creek as workers build new freeway entry and exit ramps.
Crews will conduct nightly concrete repairs on Hwy. 75 Sunday through Thursday. The repairs may affect both northbound and southbound traffic. Lane closures begin at 7:30 p.m. and are expected to end by 6 a.m.
On Hwy. 82, between FM 131 and FM 1897, and on U.S. Route 69, between Hwy. 75 and State Highway 56, watch for temporary lane closures as workers install safety treatments to fixed objects along the roadways.
On State Highway 11, between Route 69 and State Highway 121, traffic shifts and temporary, single-lane closures may be enacted as workers repair and widen the roadway.
Along Hwy. 56, between State Highway 289 and FM 901, and on Route 69, between Hwy. 82 and Spur 503, watch for daytime lane closures as crews prepare the road surface to be sealed during the summer months.
On FM 1753, from FM 1897 to State Highway 78, expect lane closures as workers repair and widen the roadway.
West Line Road at Jordan Creek will be closed to traffic beginning Monday so crews can begin work on replacing the bridge at this location.
Motorists should watch for shoulder closures and occasional lane closures as crews work in Bonham to install new sidewalks and curb ramps along State Highway 56 and State Highway 78. Crews will also be working in Honey Grove installing sidewalks and curb ramps along Hwy. 56.
