POST – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Garza County maintenance crew is scheduled to perform routine maintenance work on eastbound US 84 beginning Monday, April 2. The operation will mill and resurface segments of US 84, from FM 1269 to the Scurry County line.

The work will require the eastbound driving lane to be closed to traffic throughout the operation. Motorists can expect traffic delays and are urged to use caution when driving through the moving work zone, since crews will be working in traffic, and should keep the following tips in mind:

  • Slow down and always follow posted work zone speed limits. Speeding is one of the major causes of work zone crashes. Remember, traffic fines double in work zones.
  • Pay attention. Workers and heavy equipment may only be a few feet from passing vehicles.
  • Be patient. Delays from roadway construction can be frustrating, but it only takes a few extra minutes to slow down for a work zone.

Oversize vehicles will not be permitted through the work area during construction. Drivers should contact the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) at (800) 299-1700 for information on oversize and overweight load permits, road restriction or other questions.

Work is expected to wrap-up on Friday, April 6, and will take place weather permitting.
