KENNARD –   Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) announced a $9.3 million project to resurface roads in both Houston and Angelina counties, including a resurfacing project on State Highway 7 from Ratcliff to Kennard. 

The project was officially launched at a pre-construction meeting held Tuesday, Aug. 22 at the Lufkin District TxDOT office. The project is expected to begin Tuesday, Aug. 29 and portions of the project will finish in May, 2024.
