US 79 Down to One Lane To Repair Damaged Signal Mast Arm

Beginning at 9am on Wednesday, March 27th, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will close one lane of US 79 in order to fix the damaged mast signal arm at the intersection of US 79 and FM 46. TxDOT will also stop motorists on FM 46 in order to install the new mast arm.

The traffic signal at the intersection of US 79 and FM 46 will be in flash mode while this work is done. Motorists will treat this intersection as a 4-way stop. TxDOT and the Franklin Police Department will handle all traffic control in this area. Motorists should expect some delays.

All of this work is to be finished by noon on Wednesday. TxDOT appreciates everyone's patience during this work.
