Traffic to be detoured through Marshall
WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 6, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. or until work is completed.
WHERE: Railroad crossing on Farm-to-Market Road 2199 in Scottville.
ATLANTA — Motorists who normally travel FM 2199 in Scottsville will need to find an alternate route on Sunday, Nov. 6. Union Pacific Railroad will be closing the highway to through-traffic on this date to make repairs to the railroad crossing.
Traffic will officially be detoured on a signed route on US 80, Loop 390 and FM 1998. Motorists may also use other routes they find more convenient. 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.
