Highway 287 Closure

The southbound lanes of U.S. 287 between Electra and Iowa Park will close Tuesday, May 8, for construction on the Burnett Ranch Rd. overpass.

Contractors are performing routine maintenance to replace a bridge joint on the overpass. Work is expected to be complete by Thursday, May 17.

Southbound DETOUR: Traffic will exit at Burnett Ranch Rd. onto the service road and re-enter U.S. 287 on the entrance ramp just passed Burnett Ranch Rd.

No major delays are expected, though traffic will slow through the brief detour. During construction, northbound traffic will be down to one lane over the bridge.

This work is weather permitting. Please proceed with caution through the work zone.
