There’s been a lot of complaining about Vidor’s Main Street since TxDOT’s last resurfacing that included some “test” sections that have proven to be unsuitable. As a Farm to Market Road (FM 105), the state is responsible for maintenance and upkeep. Good news is on the horizon with plans to remove and replace the surface from Orange Street north to approximately FM 1132. According to TxDOT spokesperson Sarah Dupre, “We have a mill and overlay project on FM105 from Orange St. to approximately FM1132 that should begin within the next couple of months.” Vidor City Manager Mike Kunst confirmed the city was aware of the upcoming project, but had no more information. Kunst said motorists should expect traffic delays once the project begins as all five lanes will be involved, though not all at the same time. He added that the city would be urging TxDOT and whatever contractor is awarded the contract to complete the job as quickly as feasible.
