For the next several months, drivers going north on U.S. 75, to Sherman, should plan for the possibilities of delays, because TxDOT is beginning work on a project they call ‘ramp reversals.’

Texas Department of Transportation officials announced Thursday that work begins this week on ramp reversals on U.S. 75 at FM 1417 in Sherman.

Contractor Ed Bell Construction Company got the bid and has 149 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $2.3 million. The project will extend from the intersection of FM 1417 and U.S.

75 to approximately 1.1 miles south. They began putting up construction barricades and signs earlier this week. TxDOT said the target date for completion is July.

Motorists who may at times encounter temporary lane and shoulder closures while this work is underway. TxDOT asks drivers to pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and reduce speeds as they approach the area and to drive cautiously through work zones. And please, TxDOT added, “avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or adjusting of car audio or navigation systems.”
