WOOD COUNTY – Construction crews from TxDOT contractor Longview Bridge and Road on Monday and Tuesday this week are scheduled to place bridge beams on the State Highway 154 bridge just west of Quitman, which will require traffic to be stopped periodically. Also in Wood County, construction crews are scheduled to resume resurfacing work in various locations on State Highway 182 between Alba and Quitman in preparation for a seal coat application later this summer. Daytime lane closures will be in effect in each location while the work is in progress, and flaggers will control traffic.

Looking ahead to March 4, TxDOT construction contractor Longview Bridge and Road is scheduled to close Farm Road 1798 to all traffic on either side of U.S. Highway 259 between Henderson and Mount Enterprise so crews can begin building the overpass structure across US 259.
