The project to increase the number of lanes on Hwy. 249 from six to eight lanes between Chasewood Park Drive and Gregson Road began in September, according to TxDOT Public Information Officer Danny Perez. The project will convert the inside shoulders to a fourth lane in both the north and south directions. Work will take place at night from Thursdays to Sundays, and it will take about three months to complete, Perez said.
