Weekend Closure of FM 2818

TxDOT

Beginning Friday, June 11, 2021 at 7:30 pm TxDOT’s Contractor, Knife River, will close FM 2818 from FM 60 (Raymond Stotzer Parkway) to FM 2347 (George Bush Drive).  Detour signing will be in place to provide the public alternate routes to get around the closure.  The closure is anticipated to end by 6:00 am on Monday, June 13, 2021.  Wellborn Road and Texas Avenue are alternative North-South routes that will remain available during this closure. 

This closure will allow the placement of a large drainage structure across the full width of FM 2818 instead of placing the culvert in three smaller phases which would require reduced lanes and slower traffic over the course of months.  The single placement not only reduces the overall time to completion of the project, but is projected to provide a cost savings of over $200,000 to the State.  

This operation is part of the larger TxDOT FM 2818 project from north of FM 60 (Raymond Stotzer Parkway) to FM 2154 (Wellborn Road), for a total cost of $47.6 million.  The purpose of this project is to improve safety, enhance capacity and address congestion along FM 2818 (Harvey Mitchell Parkway) by converting the corridor to a “Super Street” design.
