New traffic signal to be activated

    A new traffic signal at the intersection of US Highway 82 and FM 2148 in Bowie County is scheduled to be activated next week, according to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

    “Activation of the new signal is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 30, weather permitting,” said Atlanta District Director of Transportation Operations Christina Trowler.  “We advise motorists to use caution as they approach the intersection while the public adjusts to the change,” Trowler added.

    Portable message boards are in place in the area to remind drivers about the upcoming change. New lighting and rumble strips are also in place at the intersection.

    Striping Technology, L.P. of Tyler was awarded the contract earlier this year with a bid of $248,913.
