TXDOT

ATLANTA, Texas — The Texas Department of Transportation’s (TXDOT) replacement of bridges over the Sulphur River on State Highway 8 at the Bowie-Cass County line continues.

Along with bridge replacement over the Sulphur River, in Cass County, on U.S.-59, from 1.5 miles south of State Highway 155 to the Marion County line includes the installation of a safety barrier cable with daily lane closures. There is also the widening of a bridge at Jennings Slough on U.S.-67 with signal lights controlling one-way traffic.

In Texarkana, Interstate 30 from FM-989 (Summerhill Road) to State Line Avenue on Interstate 30 continues in Texarkana.

On I-30, daytime work is ongoing in the median, and drivers should watch for trucks and equipment pulling onto I-30.

For Bowie County, this is one of three TXDOT projects in the county. The other two projects are bridge replacement over the Sulphur River at the Bowie-Cass County line on State Highway 8, and the replacement of a bridge over Anderson Creek on State Highway 98.

At Anderson Creek on SH-98, traffic is restricted to one lane with signal lights controlling traffic through work zone.
