ATLANTA — Motorists who normally travel FM 968 in Harrison County will need to find an alternate route from Monday, Oct. 31, through Thursday, Nov. 3. AEP Pirkey Power Plant will be closing the highway to through-traffic on these dates to make repairs to the railroad crossing.
Traffic will officially be detoured on a signed route on the south frontage road of Interstate 20 and on FM 3251. Portable message boards will be placed near the railroad crossing beforehand to warn motorists of the scheduled road closure. The construction schedule and road closure can change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen problems.
Anyone having any questions about the road closure, detour routes or construction work can call the Texas Department of Transportation Marshall maintenance section at 903-935-2809 for more information.
