TXDOT still replacing bridges at Sulphur River


TEXARKANA — The Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) says they are continuing to replace bridges over State Highway 8 at the Sulphur River, the Bowie-Cass County line.

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

The transportation department is also reconstructing and widening of the highway on Interstate 30 from FM-989 to the Arkansas state line in Texarkana.

There will be daytime work in the median, and motorists should watch for trucks and equipment pulling onto the interstate.

TXDOT is also continuing to replace the bridge over Anderson Creek on State Highway 98. Traffic restricted to one lane with signal lights controlling traffic through work zone.

Throughout the rest of Bowie County, there is a ramp rehabilitation on Interstate 30 at the 207 exit/Spur 594. The I-30 westbound lanes in the area will be restricted to one lane, and the ramp will be closed.

Eastbound from U.S.-259, there are drainage upgrades on I-30. Traffic will be limited to one lane, according to TXDOT.
