TxDot work continues on state highway 204 off Loop 456

CHEROKEE COUNTY — Texas Department of Transportation maintenance crews this week are scheduled to perform shoulder and edge work on SH 204 between Loop 456 in Jacksonville and SH 110 in Ponta.

The work is in preparation for a seal coat application scheduled for the late next week or early in the week of June 9.

Daytime lane closures will be in effect while the work is in progress, and flaggers will control traffic.

Here's a quick look at events and other work planned in the East Texas area:

HENDERSON COUNTY – As early as Wednesday this week, TxDOT contract crews are scheduled to perform seal coat operations on the following roadways:

- West Loop 7 between FM 59 and FM 1616

- FM 59 between SH 19 in Athens and FM 753

- US 175 east of Athens between FM 804 and FM 315 (Saturday)

TxDOT’s seal coat program seals nearly 300 centerline miles of roadway each summer, extending the maintenance-free service life of those roadways by as much as 10 years or more. Local TxDOT crews have been preparing sections of these roadways over the past year in preparation for sealing.
