In December the Texas Transportation Commission approved contract awards for six projects in the San Antonio District, totaling $13.5 million in work spread across five counties.
On U.S. Hwy 281 between I-37 and FM 1099, at Campbellton, Hunter Industries will work to restore the roadway and improve some of the intersections. The $1.5 million restoration work will address some of the deterioration due to recent heavy truck traffic, while the intersection improvements will improve safety at key intersections.
The intersections to be improved are at FM 140, FM 791 and FM 1099.
On San Pedro Road between I-410 and U.S. 281, in north-central San Antonio, Clark Construction will repair and replace the roadway base. The $1 million project will mostly be done at night in order to avoid impacting daytime traffic.
On FM 1581 between FM 117 and Divot Road, south of Pearsall, Angel Brothers Enterprises will widen the road to add a continuous left-turn lane. The $1.9 million project also improves the intersection at Divot Road.
On U.S. Hwy 90 between the Kinney County line and FM 481, west of Uvalde, Ace Asphalt will improve safety features along the roadway. The $1.4 million project will add inverted pavement rumble strips and flatten roadway side slopes.
On FM 117 between U.S. Hwy 83 and the Zavala County line, south of Uvalde, Hunter Industries will restore and rebuild the roadway. The $2.1 million project will address roadway deterioration issues along the 6.7-mile stretch brought by increased truck traffic.
On FM 541 between U.S. Hwy 181 and the Atascosa County line, southwest of Poth, Dean Word COmpany will rehabilitate and widen the existing roadway. The $5.6 million job will add shoulders to the roadway, enhancing safety along a corridor carrying heavy truck traffic.
Work on all projects will begin this spring.
