Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
DENISON, TX-TxDOT is asking drivers to use caution along FM-120 as they work to repave the road from Denison to Pottsboro.
Area engineer, David Selman said crews are using a new type of pavement which allows water to seep through, and prevents water from splashing up when it rains. The pavement should extend the life of the road by ten years.
He said they'll stop construction over Memorial Day weekend, but before and after that, drivers should expect lane closures.
"We just ask folks to slow down as this construction is taking place. We're actually be completed with construction in possibly a couple of months so it's actually really a short time project," he said.
