WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A project on a busy roadway in Wichita Falls is at the halfway mark.
The southbound lanes of Maplewood Avenue. between E. Montgomery Place and Mallard Drive is set to reopen by Tuesday evening.
The stretch was closed so TxDOT crews could culverts. The second half of the project which will do the same in the northbound lanes will begin in mid-June.
The work will close Maplewood between Miller Road and Plaza Parkway. A detour will be put in place.
The old culverts are being replaced because of their age and width. TxDOT will also be installing new sidewalks for this project as well.
The work was made possible with federal funding that pays for bridge replacements on city and county roads.
