ATLANTA — Motorists who normally travel FM 9 North in Waskom will need to find an alternate route on Saturday, Nov. 5. 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, FM 134 and FM 1999. 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.
