Starting August 11, the Texas Department of Transportation is set to begin a roadway overlay project on State Highway 3 from Walker to South of State Highway 96. The project entails base repair and seal coat, pavement markings, and traffic signal updates. Due to the amount of traffic that travels on SH 3, construction has been scheduled at night between the hours of 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. The traffic signal updates will include a new vehicle detection system at SH 96 and a completely new traffic signal system at Walker. The new traffic signal will be a mast arm, which will improve the aesthetics and maintenance of the equipment. The updated pavement markings at SH 96 include the addition of longer left turn bays both northbound and southbound. This change in pavement markings will help progress vehicles through the intersection by increasing storage capacity and positive guidance for vehicles traveling on SH 3.
