BELTON (January 26, 2011)-- The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has begun a project to increase safety on Loop 121 at Avenue D in Belton.
The project will consist of the construction of a left turn lane and the installation of a traffic signal at the intersection of Loop 121 and Avenue D.
Work began January 22 with the setting up of construction warning signs and barricades in the project area. The project is being undertaken by James Construction Group of Baton Rouge, LA., at a cost of $362,000 dollars. It is projected for completion by early Summer of this year. Temporary lane closures and some traffic congestion can be expected during the course of the project.
TxDOT urges the public to observe all warning signs and to exercise caution when passing near construction personnel and equipment in the project area.
