Project will enhance safety for motorists on current two-lane highway
COLEMAN – TxDOT has awarded a $1,678,694.17 contract to J.H. Strain & Sons Inc. of Tye to construct passing lanes on an approximately 8.2-mile segment of US 67 in Coleman County. The project limits are from State Highway 206 to near County Road 368 west of Valera.
The project will widen portions of the current two-lane highway to allow drivers to safely pass slower vehicles in dedicated passing lanes without having to cross the yellow center line. In addition, guardrails and drainage structures along the right of way will be upgraded to meet the latest safety standards.
Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-April, with completion anticipated in February or March 2018, weather permitting.
Motorists are urged to use caution while driving in the work zone. TxDOT reminds drivers that traffic fines are doubled in work zones when workers are present.
TxDOT’s Brownwood District includes Brown, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, Lampasas, McCulloch, Mills, San Saba and Stephens counties.
