DALLAS -- The Texas Transportation Commission has awarded a $150 million contract to Austin-Angel JV to repair roads that have been damaged by heavy trucks and increased traffic in the oil and gas producing regions of the state. The money is part of the $225 million approved by the 2013 state Legislature under House Bill 1025.

"The energy sector provides a tremendous economic boost to the state of Texas, but it must be supported in a manner that is safe to everyone on our roadways," said Texas Transportation Commissioner Fred Underwood.
