The next phase of construction on Highway 349 starts this month.
The project is designed to widen the highway.
Construction will go from the Dawson County, south into Martin County a little more than six miles.
Crews will be working from south to north in two mile long sections and only one lane will be open during the daytime hours.
Two lanes will be open at night.
Speed limit in the area will be reduced to 45 mph.
