Road work to bring daytime lane closures

Published on Sunday, 1 June 2014 23:35 - Written by Staff Reports

The Texas Department of Transportation will be working to improve roadways in its eight-county district this week.

Daytime lane closures will be in effect in each location while the work is in progress, and flaggers will control traffic. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes, if possible, to avoid long delays associated with the work.
