A second project on SH 154 west of Quitman is scheduled to begin construction this week.

Crews from contractor D.L. Lennon, Inc., of Commerce, are scheduled on Monday to begin a $5.8 million project to add shoulders between SH 37 in Quitman and the Lake Fork Reservoir bridges. The project is in conjunction with the ongoing bridge project on SH 154, which widened the bridge to include shoulders. The bridge project is scheduled for completion this summer, while the new shoulder-widening project is scheduled for completion next year.

Also this week in Wood County, construction crews are scheduled to complete resurfacing operations on SH 182 between Alba and Quitman, and continue work on FM 1804 (Hoard Road) between US 80 and the Smith County Line.

Finally this week, TxDOT maintenance crews are scheduled to make base and pavement repairs on in various locations on Loop 564 in Mineola.

Daytime lane closures will be in effect in each location while the work is in progress, and flaggers will control traffic.
