Work to resurface a portion of FM 989/Kings Highway in Texarkana is scheduled to begin this summer, according to plans awarded in May by the Texas Department of Transportation.

“The project includes 1.9 miles of four-lane highway, between US 82 and US 67,” said Texarkana Area Engineer Tommy Bruce. “Work will take place at night, between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., to minimize the impact to the traveling public,” Bruce added.

RK Hall, LLC of Paris was awarded the contract with a bid of $1,902,107.

Work is expected to begin in July 2023 and should be complete in about two months, weather permitting.
