TxDOT Working to Repair Road Damage on FM 1806

Wichita Falls, Texas - According to the Texas Department of Transportation, a specialized TxDOT team has been working all day at the site of the damage on FM 1806.

They are installing pipe and repairing the road for temporary use.  Any continuing rain or flooding could affect their progress, but they will continue working as long as possible today.

TxDOT is tentatively planning on opening the roadway by tomorrow evening.  

TxDoT officials stress that the time of completion will depend on weather and possible flooding. However, the temporary crossing will be capable  of use by cars, pickups, trucks, and buses.

Meanwhile engineers are working on plans and funding for an emergency contract to install a new structure using concrete culverts.
