Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is adding new safety features to various highways in its Brownwood District, which will include various locations on U.S. and state highways as well as farm to market roads in Brown, Coleman, Comanche and Eastland Counties.
These locations will also include I-20 through Eastland County.
L&L Company of Odessa will begin installing center line rumble strips and thermal plastic striping. This project will increase driver safety in an effort to help drivers avoid crossing over the centerline of traffic on these roadways and to avoid crashes where vehicles run off the roadway.
The $1.68 million project will begin the morning of July 23 is anticipated to be complete by the end of September 2018. Work will be performed on weekdays and occasional Saturdays during this time.
Due to this project being mobile, the contractor will use advance notice signs on the roadway. There will be no lane closures during the project; however, motorists are reminded to slow down when in the work zone and to watch for slow moving construction equipment.
