begin several weeks of work on bridge rail and guard rail replacement
along US 79 in Anderson County.

The work will continue later in Smith County along Highway 110 between Troup and Whitehouse.

In Anderson County, the work will be performed consecutively at the

Daytime lane losures will be in effect while the work is in progress,
and motorists are encouraged to use caution in and around the work
zone.

Texas Department of Transportation maintenance crews are
scheduled to begin resurfacing parts of FM 317 east of Athens this week,
weather permitting.

The resurfacing effort will take place over the coming weeks in various
locations between FM 1803 east of Athens, and FM 314 south of
Brownsboro.

Daytime lane closures will be in effect while the work is in progress.
Motorists should seek alternate routes if possible to avoid delays.
