This round of work is expected to run through early May with a second round starting at the end of May.

TxDOT's preventative maintenance program is a two-step seal coat process that covers an existing roadway with a layer of hot asphalt followed by rock. The process seals the roadway to keep water out thereby adding years of life and requiring less maintenance while providing a new driving surface for motorists.

TxDOT reminds motorists to expect short delays and day time lane closures in the work locations. Drivers should use caution when traveling through the work zones which will include flaggers handling traffic control in two-lane areas. Remember, traffic fines double when workers are present.
