The road closure is necessary as crews complete a bridge deck pour over US 377. The road is expected to reopen by 8 a.m. that day. Drivers are asked to find alternate routes for the time being.
The operation is part of ongoing construction of a $30 million-plus Texas Department of Transportation project to overhaul a 1.12-mile portion of US 377. The project includes reconstruction and widening of the highway from a two-lane rural road to a four-lane, divided roadway with raised medians and sidewalks, according to TxDOT.
