New Construction Project beginning in San Augustine County

October 29, 2020 - A virtual pre-construction meeting was held by the Nacogdoches Area Office Wednesday, signaling the beginning of a new construction project in San Augustine County.

The project is designed to include the construction of passing lanes on US 96 from FM 3451 in San Augustine to SH 21 for 2.72 miles. Barricades and signage are scheduled to be set with work beginning on Nov. 9, weather permitting.

Madden Contracting Company LLC, Sibley LA, will serve as contractor for the $4.8 million construction project that includes reconstructing shoulders, constructing passing lanes and widening drainage structures. The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2021.

As this project begins, motorists are urged to stay alert to traffic control, signage, work zone speed limits, moving equipment and workers near the lanes of traffic. This project is designed to improve traffic flow and enhance safety.
