A section of US 259 near DeKalb will be widened and receive new riding surface during the coming year according to plans approved in April by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), a press release recently stated.

“We will be widening a 2.9-mile section of US 259 from US 82 near DeKalb to 0.3 mile south of Farm-to-Market Road 44 South,” said Kenny Icenhower, area engineer for TxDOT in Texarkana. “The surface of the current pavement will be removed, the existing base material strengthened and extended out, then the entire roadway will be repaved.”

  1. H. Howard and Sons of Daingerfield was awarded the contract for this construction project with a bid of $5.4 million.

Work on this project should begin in June and take about 18 months to complete, Icenhower said
