Highway expansions approved for future

By  | 

LAMAR COUNTY, (KXII) -- Projects are in the works to eventually expand highway 82 from Bowie County west all the way to Wichita Falls into four lanes.

271 south will also see a four-lane expansion through Lamar, Red River and Franklin Counties, all the way to I-30 in Titus County.

Lamar County Judge Chuck Superville says the projects have all been approved but are not all funded yet.

He hopes they'll spawn more economic development in the area.
