— Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 14 (weather permitting), the Texas Department of Transportation will temporarily close FM Road 1884 to reconstruct a portion of the roadway.

TxDOT officials planned to begin the closure and work this week but have delayed it because of a forecast of rain this week.

The road will be closed for a week, starting 1 mile south of Melody Lane to Thompson Road. Motorists may detour to Tin Top Road and Thompson Road. A section of the road will be lowered approximately 8 feet.

The $6.4 million project will add shoulders to the roadway add left turn lanes at several intersections and replace the bridge over Sanchez Creek. Project completion is planned for later this year.
