Two traffic safety features will be installed this week in Bellevue according to the Texas Department of Transportation.
Adele Lewis, public information officer for the Wichita Falls TxDOT district, said poles, cables and warning flashers will be placed on the north side of U.S. Highway 287 at Hilltop Road. They also will go in on the south side of U.S. 287 at Farm-to-Market Road 1288.
The FM 1288 installation will take place on March 15 and the Hilltop Rd work on March 16.
Then on March 21 TxDOT will temporarily close U.S. 287 at night starting at 9 p.m. to string the cable across the freeway and attach the flashers over the main lanes.
These flashers are replacing the ones that were knocked down last year. U.S. 287 will have flashing amber lights as a warning.
Hilltop and FM 1288 will have red lights and require a stop for motorists.
This type of job will be postponed if poor weather conditions move into the area. Drivers should be cautious during these work periods.
