Construction to roads around the Wharton downtown area is upon us. Resurfacing of Business Hwy 60 began in August. Ryan Simper, who is the local Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) engineer, told the City of Wharton work would continue along Milam and Burleson streets. According to TxDOT, each will be resurfaced and restriped to a single lane with broad shoulders. Some “too close to the corner” parking spaces will be eliminated but otherwise parking spaces will not be changed.
According to TxDOT, the construction is scheduled to be completed before the end of September. (Staff video by Albert Villegas)
