Pavement repair and overlay work is being conducted along Hwy. 21 between the Caldwell County line and Hwy. 71 in Cedar Creek. The $9.5 million project is set to be completed in mid- to late summer, Texas Department of Transportation officials said.

No detour avoiding Hwy. 21 is required.

The details

The road will be covered with a thin overlay mixture to increase crack and rut resistance. Reports show a 25%-35% better ride quality and reduced road noise with the overlay mixture.

By the numbers

The work is being paid for with state and federal preventative maintenance and rehabilitation funds. Federal funds will pay for 80% of the project, while state funds will pay the remaining amount.
