Traffic Alert: Nocona intersection getting work done

NOCONA, TX (KAUZ) - A popular intersection in Nocona is getting some upgrades.

A $270,000 contract to upgrade to traffic lights on US 82 at FM 103 and on US 82 at SH 175 will begin this week.

New signal poles, as well as traffic signals, are being installed in that area.

TxDOT officials said barricades will be set up later this week in preparation for the work.

FM 103 currently only has a span wire to hold its signal heads. The upgrade will raise the new signals enough to avoid being hit by over height loads.

Along with the new poles and signals, the US 82 SH 175 and FM 103 intersections will be programmed to function as one intersection to improve service to motorists.

The contractor will have two months to complete the installation.
