The Texas Department of Transportation will begin the second phase of the concrete median barrier, sidewalks, illumination and signal project on US 59 Monday.

During this second phase they will install a new raised median on the portion of U.S. 59 between John Stockbauer and Teakwood drives. The department expects the section to be completed within 51 days.

Installing the raised median will require long term inside lane closures in each direction of travel throughout the entire process.

Motorists should expect possible traffic delays and are urged to use caution when driving through the work zone.

The entire project involves the length of U.S. 59 from Loop 463 to Navarro Street and was awarded to Texas Steel Industrial Placing for a bid of nearly $3.5 million. The project began on Oct. 26 and is expected to finish in December of 2022.
