Highway 287 Traffic Delay

A well-traveled piece of the Wichita Falls Freeway system will be closed today for repaving work.

The Southbound Elevated Freeway US 287 will be closed from 8th Street to Jacksboro Highway starting at 8:15 a.m.

Motorists will have to take the Holliday Street exit as the detour.

The closure will also include one ramp on the Falls Flyer that moves Eastbound US 82 traffic to Southbound US 287.  Various on and off ramps will be closed intermittently throughout the day.

Closing the Southbound lanes will allow pavers to resurface the roadway quicker and more easily.

It is recommended that you allow extra time for your commute.  It would be preferable to avoid the area if possible.

Work is expected to wrap up by the evening.  Northbound US 287 and the Northbound Elevated will not be impacted by this project.
