More than a dozen roadways in seven counties in the Waco area have received needed repairs by the Texas Department of Transportation.

More than 130 mi of Farm-to-Market, State and U.S. roadways were seal-coated over the summer. The seal coating is designed to increase the life and safety of the roadway surface by acting as a type of waterproofing, as well as protecting the roadway from harsh weather.

Newman & Keng Paving Co. Inc. of Giddings worked on the $6.5-million project.
