Highway 11 extension project to open Tuesday
By Scott Harvey
Hopkins County – In less than a week, motorists travelling through Hopkins County will have a few more options, and a shortcut if they so choose.
The extension of Highway 11 south of Sulphur Springs is scheduled to open Tuesday.
The extension runs between the intersection of State Highway 154 and SH 11 to SH 19.
Contractor A.K. Gillis & Sons Inc. are currently striping the pavement and pouring concrete to create islands around traffic signals, along with installing signs and markers.
Crews will continue work after the extension is opened, and officials are asking motorists to exercise caution while in the work zone.
