Weather permitting, The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will temporarily close one lane of State Highway 34 at Kings Creek Drive through the spring of 2022, as work begins to add a left turn lane at this intersection.
The closures will occur from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and there will be additional crews on site to help direct traffic. Drivers should plan ahead for extra travel time in this area. Message boards have been placed to alert drivers of the upcoming work. TxDOT is urging motorists to use caution in the work zone. Visit www.DriveTexas.org for the latest road closures on this project and others.
Construction of this $1.4 million project, which is part of a broader improvement project along SH 34 spanning from Ellis to Kaufman County, started in the fall of 2021. Work is expected to be complete in the spring of 2022, weather permitting. New World Contracting, LLC is the contractor on this project.
