TXDOT continues replacing bridges over Sulphur River


ATLANTA, Texas — The Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) is still continuing the bridge replacement over the Sulphur River at the Bowie-Cass County line on State Highway 8.

For Cass County, the only other transportation department project is the widening of a bridge at Jennings Slough on U.S.-67 with signal lights controlling one-way traffic.

In Bowie County, TXDOT continues with the widening of Interstate 30 (Summerhill Road) to State Line Avenue in Texarkana. On I-30, daytime work is ongoing in the median, and drivers should watch for trucks and equipment pulling onto I-30.

Throughout the rest of Bowie County, there are two other projects: the replacement of a bridge over Anderson Creek on State Highway 98 and the aforementioned bridge replacement.
