PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation officials today advised motorists traveling in its northeast Paris District to watch for temporary road work in the days ahead.

Contractor Stripe-A-Zone Inc. will begin texturing the shoulders and centerlines of several roadways in Delta, Fannin, Franklin and Hopkins counties on Sept. 11. Crews will also install profile pavement markings on these roads, officials said.

The contractor has 36 working days, weather permitting, to complete this work.

Motorists traveling in these counties are asked to remain alert and pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
