FM 46 To Be Closed at South Walnut Creek Bridge

By  | 

ROBERTSON COUNTY — Beginning Monday, June 3, 2013, FM 46 in Robertson County will be closed at the South Walnut Creek Bridge for up to 10 days.

This bridge is located approximately 9.9 miles south of Bremond and approximately 4.7 miles north of Franklin. This closure is needed to remove and replace the bridge rail to upgrade to a design that meets current safety standards.

Traffic travelling through this area will need to detour by way of FM 979 and FM 2293. Due to the narrow width of the existing bridge and the high volume of truck traffic, TxDOT is closing FM 46 at this location during this work to ensure the safety of the traveling public and contractor’s workers.

This work is part of a $3.1 million-dollar road widening project from Bremond to FM 979 in Owensville. This work is contracted to Glenn Fuqua, Inc., out of Navasota, Texas. TxDOT and their contractor appreciate everyone’s patience during this closure.
