The Texas Department of Transportation plans to temporarily close portions of FM 546 as part of an improvement project on the road.

Weather permitting, the closure will begin at 6 p.m. Oct. 16, and will continue until 7 a.m. Oct. 18. FM 546 from CR 317 to CR 324 will be affected.

TxDOT crews will provide signage that will indicate detour routes in the area. The closed area will be open only to motorists with final destinations within the closure, per the news release.

A second weekend closure on FM 546 is scheduled for the weekend of Oct. 23 through Oct. 25 that will span from CR 317 to CR 324.

The overall project will reconstruct FM 546 pavement while adding shoulders and replacing the cross-drainage culvert.
