Construction on U.S. Highway 183 north of Hochheim begins Tuesday
The Texas Department of Transportation will begin road construction Tuesday on U.S. Highway 183 from Farm-to-Market Road 3282 to one mile south of Farm-to-Market Road 2067 in Gonzales County.
The project will improve the roadway by extending passing lanes and adding turning lanes for public safety.
"We're making turn lanes to improve safety where there is more traffic," said Area Engineer Brian Schoenemann. "We're also extending passing lanes in sections, comparable to Highway 183 north of Gonzales, to make passing easier for motorists."
Flaggers will be on hand to direct traffic to one lane in alternating sections, and motorists also are encouraged to pay attention to area warning signs.
The project is anticipated to be complete in early spring 2013, weather permitting.
