Hwy 6 Traffic Detour

By  | 

Get ready for a major traffic detour on Highway 6 this weekend.

On Saturday, the Texas Department of Transportation will be shift traffic from Highway 6 to the frontage roads, between Greens Prairie and the Texas World Speedway.

The speed limit will be lowered to a 55 mph speed limit.

The traffic shift will allow crews to remove the existing pavement and construct the proposed Nantucket overpass.

It's part of a $15.3 million dollar construction project.

The project is scheduled to be completed by fall 2007.
