Crossover shutting down for 26 hours Oct. 13-14
BY CHRISTINA DERR
As the Hwy. 199 construction project progresses, another temporary inconvenience will be added to the commute between Azle and Lake Worth this Friday and Saturday night.
The crossover for access to Hanger Cut-Off Road and Tenderfoot Trail will be closed for approximately 26 hours Friday, Oct. 13-Saturday, Oct.14
Crews will shut down the crossover at 7 p.m. Friday, and it will remain inaccessible through 9 p.m. Saturday.
All activities are weather permitting.
The closure is planned to allow the safe installation of bridge beams at that intersection.
Traffic needing cross the highway to access either of those streets will be detoured to either Nine Mile Bridge Road or the Wells Burnett Road/Normandy Avenue intersection depending on the direction of travel.
TxDOT and law enforcement request that drivers use caution when traveling in this area.
The closure is part of the Hwy. 199 project that will add six freeway lanes, ramps and four bridges at Western Center Blvd., Hanger Cut-Off Road, Nine Mile Bridge Road, and over Cottonwood Creek.
The $46.3 million project will complete the five-mile section of main lanes on Hwy. 199 and is scheduled for completion in 2019.
