Harrison I-20

Back to Project Gallery

This is a Texas Department of Transportation project under the authority of the Marshall Area Office.  The project is generally the reconstruction of the exit ramp at the Tourist Center on the Texas/Louisiana State Line near Waskom, TX.  The work consists of breaking and removing the existing failed concrete paving and replacing it with new concrete paving.  Before the new concrete goes down, an asphalt paved base course will be placed on the existing subgrade.  

The most challenging part of the project was maintaining traffic through the project at all times during construction.  This was accomplished by the installation of a TXDOT designed temporary asphalt detour.  However truck traffic was banned from the ramp by TXDOT for the duration of the project.
