The Texas Department of Transportation began construction in June on a 1.12-mile portion of Hwy. 377 in Roanoke.

The road improvement project stretches from Henrietta Creek Road north of Byron Nelson Boulevard to James Street, and it includes the reconstruction and widening of Hwy. 377 from a two-lane rural road to a four-lane divided roadway with raised medians and sidewalks, according to TxDOT.

TxDOT officials announced in August that one-way traffic patterns would begin Aug. 10 on a number of city side streets. Streets impacted by one-way signage include Bowie Street, Crockett Street, Denton Street, Houston Street, Main Street, Rusk Street and Travis Street.

“Traffic will be in this one-way configuration until late 2020,” city spokesperson Morgan Roundy said. “Message boards have been placed to alert drivers of the new traffic pattern.”


TxDOT officials are requesting that drivers remain aware when traveling through work zones. More information on TxDOT roadwork projects is available at www.drivetexas.org.
