LUFKIN – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) held a pre-construction meeting Monday afternoon that signaled the beginning of two construction projects in Nacogdoches County.

Pinto Construction, contractor for both projects, is scheduled to set project barricades this week. A $1 million project will rehabilitate and widen FM 95. The roadway will be widened from 22 to 24 feet from Red Springs Road to the county line for a distance of 1.7 miles.

In addition, Pinto Construction will safety treat fixed objects on FM 95 from US 59 in Garrison to the county line which includes driveway and cross road culverts at a project cost of $360,259 and will continue for a distance of 2.2 miles. Both projects are scheduled to be completed in about 10 months.

Motorists should be prepared for delays and are urged to be cautious, alert to workers and equipment through the construction area. Be prepared to reduce speeds and remember traffic fines double when workers are present.
