Message from the Department of Transportation

LUFKIN - Work is scheduled to begin in coming days on a $3.6 million construction project on FM 1 in Sabine County.
Pinto Construction Company will set barricades early next week that will mark the beginning of work from SH 184 to SS 1. The project is designed to widen the roadway from 22 to 24 feet of paved surface. The work will consist of new base material being added, a prime coat and a surface treatment. The widening and rehabilitation project is set to be completed in about 10 months, weather permitting.
The additional paved surface width will improve safety along FM 1. The Texas Transportation Commission approved the project and bids were received in 2015.
Motorists are urged to stay alert as they travel through the construction area. Be prepared to stop or be delayed as work continues throughout the project. Obey all traffic signs and watch for workers and equipment working near lanes of travel. Remember, traffic fines double when workers are present.
