Construction work to add passing lanes on US 69 between Loop 564 in Mineola and FM 779 in Golden is scheduled to continue this week when contract crews begin dirt work for the additional lane and new shoulder. The $2.8 million project is scheduled for completion next summer.

Daytime lane closures will be in effect while the work is in progress. Motorists are encouraged to be prepared to reduce speed and merge in and around the work zone.
