A virtual pre-construction meeting was held Tuesday, signaling the beginning of a new construction project in Nacogdoches County.

Work will begin on FM 1275 the week of October 12 when barricades are set near the work zone. The project will include construction to widen and add shoulders to FM 1275 to the end of pavement and is designed to enhance safety.

Pinto Construction Co., Nacogdoches, will serve as contractor of the $6.1 million project. Work is scheduled to be completed in July 2021, weather permitting.

As work begins, motorists are urged to stay alert for barricades, flaggers and possible lane closures. Obey all signage and reduce speed through the work zone.
