TxDOT: Carthage overpass project 60 percent complete

Work continues on the overpass being built at Texas 315 and the loop in Carthage. 

A project to build an overpass at Texas 315 and the loop in Carthage is well underway, the Texas Department of Transportation said.

“It looks like they’re about 60 percent complete, and they’ve used right at about 60 percent of their time, and they probably would be ahead if they’d had better weather during this,” said Marcus Sandifer, spokesman for TxDOT’s Atlanta office.

Sandifer said the project began in 2016, with a completion goal of 3 1/2 years.

“We’re hoping that it’ll be open to traffic by the end of this year,” he said Thursday.
