Construction on the northbound side of Maplewood begins Thursday

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - Construction on the northbound side of Maplewood is set to begin Thursday.

When our crews went by early Thursday, the road had not yet been closed, but contractors were on site getting ready and inspecting equipment.

Once closed, the project will take two to three months to complete.

They will be replacing culvert, and completed the southbound side in May.

Both northbound lanes of Maplewood between Miller Road and Plaza Parkway will be completely closed while work is being done.

A detour will be in place. Drivers should avoid the area if possible and give themselves extra time if they do have to travel down that stretch.
