Date set for FM Road 1187 traffic switch

ALEDO – With construction of FM Road 1187 hitting the halfway point, traffic will be switched to the newly constructed lanes on the east side of the roadway beginning at approximately 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2, according to officials with TxDOT and McMahon Construction.

The actual switch over could cause some minor delays over a four-hour period from 8 p.m. to midnight as vehicles are diverted onto the new concrete. In addition, West Oak Street will be closed, and both East Oak Street and Underwood Road will reopen.

Access to all businesses will remain available as crews work to build the new concrete lanes on the west side of FM 1187. Upon completion, FM 1187 will be a four-lane divided parkway with a median, curbs and sidewalks.
