Bridging the US-75 Gap in Texas: $163 million project awarded, start date set

Officials with the Texas Department of Transportation estimate that it could take under three years to complete a series of improvements to U.S. Highway 75 that will see the highway brought up to current standards making the highway eligible for interstate highway standards.

The section has been dubbed “the gap” by local officials as the one piece of the highway that does not meet standards. The project will see the roadway widened to six lanes for a four-mile stretch of highway from FM 1417 to State Highway 91.
