The Texas Department of Transportation is adding shoulders to State Highway 274 between Trinidad and Tool on the west side of Cedar Creek Lake. Before the project began, the roadway had no shoulders. TxDOT spokesman Larry Krantz said the department is actively trying to upgrade its narrow, two-lane roadways to include shoulders, which bring additional pavement width to help with turning and with evasive maneuvers. The $3.3 million project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2014.
