TEXARKANA — The Texas Department of Transportation is sponsoring a preconstruction open house meeting Monday, April 24 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Pleasant Grove High School to discuss the pending construction work on Farm-to-Market 1297, otherwise known as McKnight Road.
TxDOT plans to widen the road and will listen to local residents at the meeting as well as apprise them of the work progress. Along with the road widening, two drainage structures will be replaced, and the work will require the roadway to be closed for a couple days for each structure. The work will be done on the weekend to not impact local traffic as much.
All interested citizens are invited to attend this open house learn about and discuss the project. TxDOT personnel will be available to answer questions from those in attendance.
