Bridge to close Monday for replacement

The Texas Department of Transportation will close Farm to Market Road 339 at Elm Creek, in Limestone County, on Monday, Aug 19.

The closure allows construction to begin to replace the bridge at that location, with a higher and wider concrete and steel bridge that meets current roadway safety and design specifications and upgrades the approaches to the bridge as well.

This bridge replacement is part of a larger, more than $850,000, project that began in May of this year and also replaced the bridge on FM 342 at Cottonwood Creek. That structure is tentatively scheduled to open by mid-September of this year. The FM 339 structure replacement is tentatively scheduled to be completed by mid to late December of this year.
