It’s going to be a busy summer for highway work in the Breckenridge area. The Texas Department of Transportation will have three major highway reconstruction projects underway, as well and several smaller seal-coat projects. The largest project is the reconstruction of U.S. Highway 180 from Gunsolus Creek to 500 feet east of Melrose Avenue (County Road 239). That project will reconstruct the roadway, add a center turning lane the full length of the 2.3-mile project and add new curbs, gutters and sidewalks.
