High Island, TX: SH 87 Elevation Project
« on: February 23, 2020, 09:28:41 PM »

Google Satellite View shows project near completion. Road shown as paved and ready for striping. Considering that they raised the road in place, I'm wondering how traffic was maintained during construction. Maybe motorist had to drive on an unpaved surface for a period of time?

I guess nothing will be done by TxDOT to "reconnect" the 2 parts of TX 87.  They should at least add or re-sign it along existing roads between High Island and Port Arthur.
