Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that a short-term closure of FM 64 in Delta County will be necessary beginning Aug. 22 to replace an existing box culvert on this roadway.
The temporary closure of FM 64 will occur approximately 1.3 miles south of the intersection of this roadway with FM 128, officials said. During this closure, through traffic will be detoured around this site via FM 904.
Officials estimate the temporary closure of FM 64 will last about two and one-half weeks, weather permitting.
Travelers in this area are advised to watch for road crews, expect some delays and be aware that a detour will be in place. This construction and temporary road closure are subject to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, officials said.
Motorists who frequently travel in this area are asked to pay special attention to all barricades, traffic controls and signs, and to reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones. They should also be prepared to follow a detour route around this area, and should avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
