Construction ties up traffic

Ongoing improvements to Hwy. 199 continue to cause backups as various lanes of the roadway are closed. The resurfacing project is scheduled to run through December. TxDOT representatives say that weather permitting, the project will have moved west of SHS by the start of the school year. In the case that doesn’t happen, road work that takes place on school days will not begin until after 9 a.m. Photo by Mark K. Campbell
