CR 168 Completed in Time for School
Road improvements to County Road 168, in front of Hazel Owens Elementary School, are complete.
Crews striped the newly paved and widened road this week to finish the Phase 1 project in time for the start of school on Monday.
The 1.28-mile section of road in front of the school has been widened for better turn lanes into the school, as well as repaved and a culvert replacement.
The contractor, Texana Land and Asphalt Inc., will wait for a few weeks after school starts before beginning Phase 2 of the project, which includes improving the remaining 2.26 miles of CR 168.
