Posted at 10:42 AM, May 26, 2020

TxDOT will begin performing work that will widen Highway 190 from a two-lane to a four-lane divided roadway.

The roadwork limits span from two miles south of FM 436 in Heidenheimer, TX to the Milam County Line.

Additionally, crews will be constructing a bypass that will branch off east around Rogers, TX, and then reconnect with Highway 190.

This work is set to begin on Monday, June 1, and will conclude in Early 2024, weather permitting.

There will be minimal impact on traffic for the majority of the project, however, TxDOT urges travelers in the area to be on the lookout for signage and crews as they conduct traffic control.

The 7.3-mile project is being undertaken by JD Abrams, LP at a cost of approximately $77.8 million dollars.

TxDOT urges all motorists to use caution, watch for construction personnel and equipment, and to slow their speed approaching work zones.
