Zachry Construction Corporation secured a $78 million contract with the Texas Department of Transportation to upgrade U.S. Route 281 to improve the 5.4 miles of highway north and south of Premont, TX, and redirect U.S. 281 to circumvent the town. The work began in April 2020 and  consists of building 10 bridges, four 12-foot main lanes, and 10-foot outside shoulders.
