Construction work on the US 377 Cresson Relief Route at State Highway 171 will have nightly road closures and detours starting Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, Sept. 8 - 10 from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., weather permitting. These closures will allow bridgework for construction on the by-pass project.
Construction work will include building a new bridge structure over SH 171 (and the railroad yards), which is a safety concern for motorists and is why the Texas Department of Transportation will be closing the roadway. SH 171 will be closed just east of Slocum Ranch Road (west of US 377). Traffic will be detoured from SH 171 to US 377 southbound and travel to FM 167 northbound and to FM 3450 eastbound to SH 171 (reverse for the opposite direction).
Signs will be posted for the detour and motorists should expect delays.
