TXDOT News for the week of January 8th, 2018.

Work is set to begin building the east side of the Interstate bridge that will link FM 107 to State Highway 7. The work will involve the closing of the old exit 315 northbound and the detour of all northbound traffic on the service road at the old exit,  to the newly built portion of FM 1239.

The implementation of the detour at FM 1239, along the northbound service lane at the old exit 315, to State Highway 7 is scheduled for change out the night of January 10th, 2018. On January 11th, we will be making the frontage road switch at FM 1239 for all traffic on that Wednesday morning. You will need to use the new portion of FM 1239 to access the Highway 7, and if traveling north, will need to go back to the railroad crossing and turn onto the northbound service lane. Be aware of the rail crossing. It does not change or close, and you will need to obey all signs and crossing light warnings.
