TxDOT is starting a new project in August 2017 in Combes, near Harlingen.

COMBES – The latest TxDOT project is planned in the Harlingen-San Benito Metropolitan Planning Organization district on Templeton Ave., also known as SH 107.

One part of the project extends from just east of the I-69E and U.S. 77 interstate and proceeds west along Templeton Ave. to Business 77, a distance of 0.465 miles.

Another phase extends west from there along Hwy. 107 all the way to FM 800/Bass Blvd., which will be resurfacing of the highway

The extensive project is expected to disrupt traffic during an 18-month long construction process.

TxDOT Pharr District spokesman, Octavio Saenz, said, “SH 107 is an existing urban arterial with an Average Daily Traffic of 7,000, and future Average Daily Traffic of 9,600 (in year 2037)".

In addition, new turnarounds at the interstate will be built for both southbound and northbound directions.

The project costs $3.7 million and should begin in August 2017, with completion 18 months from the start.​
