Newton County Improvement Projects Update

(Austin, TX) - State Representative James White understands the importance of transportation projects throughout House District 19. Many of the roads in Southeast Texas are the only paths that emergency services can use and that constituents take to and from work.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) completed the project located in Newton County on FM 1012 at Big Cow Creek. The project consisted of a replacement of the bridge and approaches. This project will improve and enhance safety and convenience for the citizens of Southeast Texas.

“I thank Southeast Texans for their continued support of our transportation system. Without these repairs, our economic prosperity would not continue to flourish. I thank the staff at TxDOT for prioritizing these projects that help my constituents get to and from work,” said Rep. White. “During this time of disaster recovery, I am thankful to TxDOT for completing projects that maintain our roadways open and facilitate travel throughout the area,” he concluded.

Please do not hesitate to contact either Saul Mendoza, Chief of Staff, or Shawn Dunn, District Director, with questions regarding these projects at 512-463-0490 or 409-283-3700.
