ROCKWALL COUNTY – WEATHER PERMITTING, traffic on State Highway 276 (SH 276) between SH 205 and Farm-to-Market 549 (FM 549) will shift from its current configuration to a divided roadway on Tuesday, April 28 at 9 am.
Westbound traffic will be placed on the newly constructed roadway and eastbound traffic will remain in its current location. This shift will allow the project to move to the next phase of construction.
This shift is part of a $17.6 million project to reconstruct and widen SH 276 in Rockwall County. The project started in fall 2018 and is scheduled to finish in summer 2020.
In recognition of National Work Zone Awareness Week, TxDOT urges motorists to move over and slow down and avoid distractions when traveling through work zones.
