TEXARKANA — Bridge replacement is still underway as the Texas Department of Transportation continues to work on the spans over the Sulphur River at the Bowie-Cass County line on State Highway 8.

For Bowie County, this is one of three TXDOT projects in the county. The other two projects are the reconstruction and widening of Interstate 30 from FM-989 (Summerhill Road) to State Line Avenue, and the replacement of a bridge over Anderson Creek on State Highway 98.

On I-30, daytime work is ongoing in the median, and drivers should watch for trucks and equipment pulling onto I-30.

At Anderson Creek on SH-98, traffic is restricted to one lane with signal lights controlling traffic through work zone.

Along with bridge replacement over the Sulphur River, in Cass County, on U.S.-59, from 1.5 miles south of State Highway 155 to the Marion County line includes the installation of a safety barrier cable with daily lane closures. There is also the widening of a bridge at Jennings Slough on U.S.-67 with signal lights controlling one-way traffic.
