THIS HAS BEEN DELAYED BECAUSE OF WEATHER RELATED CONDITIONS TO FINSH THE DETOUR ROAD. THIS SITE WILL UPDATE WITH NEWS FROM TXDOT AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE FROM THE ENGINEERS OFFICES.
TXDOT Release AS of Friday 4-13-2018:
Just wanted to make you aware of a closure and traffic switch that will be taking place next Thursday, April 19. Westbound SH 7 will be closed between the northbound frontage road and the new FM 1239 intersection. This will allow us to build the remainder SH 7/FM 107 intersection at the northbound frontage road. EB traffic from FM 107 will access SH 7 by turning right on 1239 (shown in green). WB SH 7 traffic will be detoured down 1239 and back to the NBFR (shown in blue). We anticipate re-opening the 107 intersection by the end of May, weather permitting.
We will be widening out the 1239 intersection and the frontage road traffic will be shifted to the inside lane to allow for better turning radii at this location.
