FLOYDADA — The Texas Department of Transportation is set to start work on a project next week to improve sidewalks and curb ramps in Floyd County, weather permitting.
“The project will make sidewalk improvements and add or upgrade ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards along various locations in Floydada, Hart and Tulia,” said Heath Bozeman, P.E., TxDOT Plainview Area engineer. Bozeman added that work could begin as early as Nov. 8.
“Project limits along FM 784 in Floydada span from N. Texas Avenue to US 70,” Bozeman said. “Other roads included in the project are US 62, from CR 260 to US 70, and US 70, from Texas Street to FM 246.”
Drivers can expect shoulder and outside lane closures during the daytime and are asked to slow down in work areas to ensure the safety of road crews.
The project also includes work in Swisher and Castro counties. In Hart, improvements will be made on FM 168 from Avenue A to Railroad Avenue. Project limits in Tulia include FM 1318 from US 87 to FM 146, SH 86 from US 87 to S. Jackson Street, US 87 from FM 1318 to SH 86, and FM 146 from FM 1318 to SH 86.
Ti-Zak Concrete, Inc. LeCenter, Minn. is the contractor for the project. Work is expected to wrap up in late July 2022.
