Parts of OSR will close for more than a year beginning Monday
Starting Monday, OSR from FM 1452 to Spur 3 will be closed and it will stay that way for over a year.
Traffic will be rerouted to accommodate for the road construction.
The project is scheduled to be completed by July 31, 2020, but that could change due to bad weather or other unforeseen conditions.
Traffic headed east on OSR will be rerouted at the intersection of FM 1452 and detour around FM1452 to FM 39 and will go north to get back on OSR.
Traffic headed westbound will have to take FM 39 South to FM 1452 to OSR.
OSR will be open from FM 39 to Spur 3 and will have access to the public school from OSR.
To alert drivers to the lane closures and detours, changeable message signs will be placed near the westbound lanes of OSR beginning about a week before the closures. The speed limit is reduced to 65 MPH throughout the limits of the project.
During this two-year project, lane closure and relocation of traffic will take place at various times to accommodate construction activity. This $17 million dollar project is contracted to Knife River Corporation."
