GOLIAD COUNTY – Lonnie Gegorcyk is well aware of Goliad County residents’ dissatisfaction with recent roadwork performed on a nine-mile stretch of State Highway 183.

“There are parts of it that is not a smooth ride,” said Gregorcyk, district engineer for the Texas Department of Transportation.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience. I guarantee we’ll get a good product out there.”

Gregorcyk said recent rains have pushed back the conclusion of the project, being performed by Hunter Industries of San Marcos.

“We’re not finished with that job by any stretch,” Gregorcyk said Friday. “They are going to lay some material to level it up. Then toward the end of August, they will come in and lay a hot mix the full length.”

Goliad County Judge David Bowman said he had received complaints about the highway.

“I told someone the other day it’s just like driving down a gravel road without the dust,” Bowman said.
