Road program in holding pattern

May 5, 2014

Howard County officials are closely watching a potential hitch in their plans to renovate area roads using state grant money.

The county is one of many in Texas participating in a program under which the Texas Department of Transportation will help defray costs of repairing county roads adversely affected by heavy oilfield traffic.
Under the program, Howard County is eligible for $3.8 million in TxDOT funds, County Judge Mark Barr said. The agency will reimburse the county for 80 percent of the costs of repair work.

Those funds would be targeted in all sectors of the county, but primarily in the northwest quadrant, which has seen the heaviest oilfied-related traffic.
