Traffic along U.S. Highway 75 may be reduced to one lane in places due to road construction next week. Texas Department of Transportation officials say concrete repair will take place beginning this Wednesday and will last until the end of February 2008.
All four lanes should be open for the holidays, but officials urge drivers to be cautious in the meantime.
"Construction is just another thing you got to watch out for, not only for the safety of drivers, but for the safety of the workers on the road too. They're just doing a job to get those repairs made to make it safer, and they need to be treated with respect and courtesy when you drive those zones," TXDOT area engineer Kevin Harris says.
TXDOT officials remind drivers to slow down when you approach a crew working since traffic fines double in active work zones.
