This $997,062.23 project will resurface more than three miles of SH 114 (19th Street), from Quaker Avenue to Milwaukee Avenue. Clark Construction of Texas, Inc., of San Antonio, was selected as the project contractor.

BAILEY COUNTY

This $15,399,876.333 project will rehabilitate an 8-mile stretch of US 84, from the eastern Muleshoe city limits to the Bailey County line. Duininck, Inc., of Roanoke, TX, was awarded the project to rebuild the roadway.

No definite construction schedules have been set for the projects, but work on all three projects is anticipated to begin in early 2014.
