Various locations of FM 1348, US 87, FM 146 and SH 86 in Tulia are part of the improvement project. Project limits in Tulia include:

  • FM 1318 — from US 87 to FM 146

“Also included in the safety improvements are the cities of Hart in Castro County and Floydada in Floyd County.

Motorists should anticipate various daytime shoulder and outside lane closures and are advised to slow down as they enter the work area for their safety and the safety of the workers.

The closures will give contractor Ti-Zak Concrete, Inc., from LeCenter, MN, the space needed to accommodate equipment and safely make the improvements, Bozeman added.

Work is expected to be completed late-July 2022.
