Paris, Texas Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that a rehabilitation project on a portion of FM 1552 in Fannin County has begun.

The contractor, Highway 19 Construction LLC, Sulphur Springs, Texas, was granted 96 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $1.8 million. The target completion date for this project is June 2022, officials said.

The contractor will widen the existing roadway, install geogrid reinforcement, apply new flex base, and prime and apply a two-course surface treatment to the pavement. This 2.46-mile project extends along FM 1552 from State Highway 78 to the end of state maintenance.

Occasional, temporary lane closures will be required during this roadway rehabilitation, officials said.

Motorists who frequently travel in this area are asked to pay special attention to all barricades, traffic controls and signs, and to reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
