FARMERSVILLE – Weather permitting, a bridge beam installation operation on the Kansas City Southern railroad overpass will take place Tuesday and Wednesday nights, October 1 and 2, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. necessitating the closure of US 380 in both directions.
Traffic will be diverted east of the Main Street just west of the bridge.
DETOUR: Eastbound traffic will turn north on SH 78 to Farmersville Parkway, then east to Main Street and south back to US 380. Westbound traffic will head north on Orange Street to Summit Street, west to Main Street then north to Farmersville Parkway, west to SH 78 and south back to US 380.
Signs, arrow boards and portable changeable message boards will be placed along the detours to guide traffic.
This is part of the $18.2 million project contracted to Ed Bell Construction for the widening of US 380 to a four-lane divided-median urban roadway. The project includes reconstruction of three city railroad crossings and two railroad bridges as well as the Main Street overpass through the City of Farmersville.
Traffic delays are likely during this bridge operation and motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes around this area during this time. TxDOT thanks the City of Farmersville, Collin County and the traveling public for their patience during this construction.
