ATLANTA, Texas — Efforts to widen State Highway 77 and FM 2888 continue in Cass County, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.
SH-77 from FM-251 to FM-1841 in Atlanta is still being widened. In addition, FM-2888 from FM-250 to SH-77 is also being widened.
In Marion County, the installation of a metal beam guard rail is still ongoing at a railroad overpass in Jefferson, thus restricting traffic to just one lane in each direction.
