Still some work to be done on highway

GREENVILLE — The project to widen U.S. Highway 380 just west of Greenville is now expected to be completed by this spring.

Texas Department of Transportation Greenville Area Engineer Tammy Sims said the project could be done in about three months.

“They are about 81 percent along right now,” Sims said. “The anticipated completion is April 2013.”

The job of widening the highway from two to four lanes through Hunt County began in the fall of 2007. Business Highway 380, where it passed through Floyd, was abandoned in favor of a new path for the highway around the city.

The project had been expected to be wrapped up by October of last year, but Sims said there were additional delays due to the discovery of previously unknown utility lines which needed to be removed and/or relocated.

“Of course, the last few weeks nothing much has been going on because of the weather,” Sims explained.

Sims said much of the current work is focused on the eastbound two lanes of the highway where it connects to U.S. Highway 69.
