KWVH Newsletter: More Road Construction, and Emergency Alert Sign-Up

RM 3237 Gets More Upgrades This Week

New cross-culverts will be installed beginning today on RM 3237 between Old Kyle Road and Winters Mill Parkway (weather permitting). The highway will be reduced to one lane daily, from 8am to 5pm, with lane closures alternating between the northbound and southbound lanes as work progresses.

Once completed, crews will begin work on cross-culvert upgrades in the Rogers Road area, with alternating lane closures on RM 3237 between Winters Mill Parkway and a quarter mile north of Winters Mill Parkway. That area will be reduced to one lane daily, from 8am to 5pm for two days.

 

TXDOT says all driveways in the area will remain open 24/7, and 3237 will be fully open during evening and overnight hours. Look out for flaggers and construction equipment in that area!
