Prepare for delays with U.S. 380 construction
Texas Department of Transportation Supervisor Rudy Leal said commuters and travelers should expect 10 to 15 minute delays as construction continues on U.S. 380.
The supervisor said TxDOT began overlaying and repairing U.S. 380’s lanes and shoulders from Young County Arena to the Young-Jack County line Monday, June 10. He added the length of construction project depends on the weather.
“(The length of the project) depends on the rain,” Leal said. “They haven’t even started today (Wednesday, June 12) because of it. It’s just hard to say it could be two weeks, it could be a week. It just depends on the rains and the way it has been this month, who knows.”
According to TxDOT’s project tracker website, the length of the project is 8.674 miles long and is estimated to cost $2,678,507. Jagoe Public Company, of Denton, is listed as the construction company used for the project.
Leal said construction will occur Monday through Saturday at varying times throughout the day. TxDOT will have one lane of traffic closed as they repave and will use the pilot car system.
Weather conditions for next week could potentially delay the construction on U.S. 380, with slight chances of rain from Saturday through Wednesday.
