Dumas – 

Overlay work on US 87 south of Dumas in Moore County is on hold after the contractor, Highway Contractors, Inc., was declared in default of the contract for non-performance.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is now working with the contractor’s surety (bondholder) on the next steps to complete the project.

TxDOT maintenance forces will continue to work diligently to make necessary repairs as weather allows until another contractor is on board.

Even though this is an idle construction zone at this time, it is still a construction zone – meaning motorists should slow down, drive to conditions and monitor the road ahead for potential hazards.

Other tips include ensuring your tires are properly inflated and when you are on the road, leave plenty of space between you and the car in front of you – you will have a better chance of spotting a pothole.

If you cannot avoid the pothole, slow down and firmly grip the wheel better control your vehicle.
