MAJOR ROAD IMPROVEMENTS HAPPENING ON PORTION OF INTERNATIONAL BOULEVARD; PROJECT TO TAKE TWO YEARS

International Blvd

The Texas Department of Transportation or TxDOT has begun the construction to rehabilitate the existing roadway on International Boulevard consisting of grading, base, surfacing, structures, drainage, signing, and pavement marking.  

The contract amount is $21 million with an estimated completion date of March of 2026.

The road improvements are from SH 4, between I-69E and State Highway 48 (SH 48).

According to TxDOT, the project will be constructed in three phases. The first phase of construction is from the I-69E frontage road to Taft Street but traffic will be affected up to about Magnetek Drive. Phase 2 construction is from Magnetek Drive to SH 48 but traffic will be affected from Harding Street to SH 48. Phase 3 construction is from Taft Street to Magnetek Drive but traffic will be affected from Roosevelt Street to Arthur Street.

For the initial phase of construction, traffic will be moved to the north side of the roadway to allow for work on the south side. 

Motorists should expect delays and are advised to observe and follow all posted warning signs, traffic control devices, and speed limit signs.

Poscillico Civil, Inc. has been hired by TxDOT to complete the work.
