AUSTIN (TxDOT) – The Texas Transportation Commission yesterday approved 15 more projects totaling more than $239 million worth of roadway construction, rehabilitation and restoration. To date, commissioners have now approved final contract awards on 75 of the 200 planned Proposition 1 projects.
Specific projects awarded this month include roadway repair along US 287 in Hardeman and Childress counties, construction of an interchange on US 62 in Lubbock and construction of freeway ramps in Brazos County.
Proposition 1, which dedicates a portion of oil and gas tax revenue to the state highway fund, was approved last November by Texas voters.
The 200 planned projects will result in more than 800 miles of rehabilitated highways; nearly 500 miles of new highway lanes; 114 bridges replaced, widened or rehabilitated; and an additional 159 miles of passing lanes on rural highways.
