DAWSON COUNTY - The Texas Department of Transportation crews began work on an $18 million dollar project in Dawson County this week.
The project will make major improvements on Highway 349 from State Highway 137 junction to the Martin County Line.
The existing roadway will be completely rebuilt from a two-lane road to a four-lane undivided highway
If you're traveling on highway 349 in this area, you can expect slow moving traffic and delays.
You're asked to find another route if possible.
The project is expected to be completed by late summer of 2016.
